Chief Operating Officer
New Disabled South

Hi there! I'm a Success Strategist, Operations Maximizer, and People Champion 13+ years of experience working and/or leading startups, scaleups, and fully remote orgs in the realm of social justice, DEIB, and advocacy. I'm passionate about remote and virtual work (not new to this but true this!), organizational design and strategy, leadership and authenticity, equity centered HR and liberation for oppressed and marginalized people. A Chicago native, I've spent most of my life in the South and now live in Tampa, Florida. I am the Co-Founder and COO of New Disabled South (c3) and New Disabled South Rising (c4), the nations only regional disability justice organization. I also run a consulting company ( where I help individuals and organizations define and align their operations and values; provide executive coaching and thought partnership on large-scale strategy; and helps orgs build equity-centered HR policy and navigate high impact internal transitions. I started my first company in 2009. I enjoy connecting with people across boundaries. The ties that bind all of my experiences are 1). A commitment to social justice, equity, and liberation; 2). A love of strategy grounded in human psychology that informs how I lead; 3). Building relationships and consensus and leveraging people connections to move the mission forward. I'm excited to be a part of NetRoots 2023 in my hometown. Old Fashioned Donuts in Roseland has the best donuts if you can break away and make it over there. Let's connect!
