About

A Bay Area native transplanted to Seattle, I relocated in 2016 to pursue a passion in sustainable design and affordable housing. I have become inspired by the rise in intersectionality across the climate and housing crises in both the Bay Area and Seattle and am proud to be a part of the movement to address these needs within my communities.
