I believe that everyone deserves a say in the systems that affect their daily lives. That’s why I’m passionate about working hand in hand with communities and stakeholders to identify and tackle the challenges that we face. Whether it’s advocating for policies that prioritize equity, inclusivity, and accessibility or fostering meaningful engagement, I am committed to creating and maintaining engagement that is truly sustainable and unbiased. I think that by building partnerships based on trust and respect, we can make a real difference.
