I am a 2022 District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities Fellow. A proud University of North Carolina Tarheel, I also have a master’s in public health from Johns Hopkins University and a Juris Doctor from Georgetown University. My day job is as an attorney for United Nations agencies, whose views and member states I absolutely do not represent. My night job is being a mother to four children. I volunteer my expertise in public health policy and refugee law to organizations working in Afghanistan, Malawi, and Mexico, and I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer from the Kyrgyz Republic.
