Professional Experience:
I have worked in the anti-human trafficking, children's rights, and human rights field for over seven years. I designed and launched a national awareness and advocacy campaign on child trafficking for UNICEF USA, and scaled it to reach 60,000 people annually through 100s of engagements. This work was done in partnership with over 50 organizations, coalitions, and companies. This campaign was the US arm of UNICEF's international End Violence campaign, where I coordinated with staff in country offices and national committees around the globe on shared goals and contributed to impact reports.

Through this work, I have spoken at the United Nations, on CNN International, at international conferences, and on over 25 college and university campuses.

I recently completed a Masters in Social Innovation through which I became skilled in social entrepreneurship, systems thinking, human-centered design, and sustainable business design.

I serve on the board of More Too Life, a survivor-led victim services and prevention program focused on human trafficking and violence. I have served on the National Steering Committee for Fair Trade Campaigns and the Executive Board for the NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons at the United Nations.

In 2018, I competed in the Global Social Innovation Challenge where I pitched my idea for a more intersectional approach to addressing social and environmental justice issues. I was a finalist in the competition and was awarded three in-kind prizes. In 2016, I was honored as a New Abolitionist. In 2014, I was a top 5 finalist for the "Nonprofiteer of the Year Award" given by the Young Nonprofit Network.
Education:
Students pursuing a Master of Arts in Social Innovation (MASI) look critically at the roots of social challenges and injustice, and then seek to create real change through bold new responses to poverty, inequality, human rights abuses and humanitarian crises. The Master's in Social Innovation degree is an accelerated program and is unlike any other in that it starts by diving deep into real social challenges, then pairs that knowledge with critical thinking, inventiveness, leadership and sustainable business design.

During my studies I focused on using social innovation and sustainable business to address issues including human trafficking, climate change, gender inequality, and economic development. For my capstone project, I competed in the Global Social Innovation Challenge where I pitched my idea for a more intersectional approach to addressing social and environmental justice issues. I was a finalist in the competition and was awarded three in-kind prizes.
