Consultant, Advocacy Trainer, Disability Rights Specialist, Speaker and Mediator
I am a committed and passionate advocate for the things I believe in. I am proud to offer the skills and services that I have acquired during my more than 20-year career and throughout my life. I have worked as a lawyer and advocate focusing on civil & disability rights, social justice, inclusive development and human rights. My work has included project management, policy analysis, mediation and lobbying for non-profits within the United States and globally. Born with a physical disability, this work has always been a part of my path.
Over the course of my career, I have worked in Washington, D.C., across the U.S. and in more than 55 countries. I have had the honor of engaging with individuals and building community all over the world. This gives a unique and personal perspective to the work that I do. I embody what I teach and share, always bringing creativity, heart, innovation and skill.
My areas of specialty, offered in English and Spanish, include:
- Disability Rights and Policy

- Customized Presentations

- Coaching and Mentoring

My commitment to this work comes from my personal, lived experience. My desire is to be of service to those who wish to activate and transform their vision into effective action. By leading with heart, thoughtfulness and respect for every individual, I aim to remind people of their deeper humanity and inherent value so that they are inspired to take action with integrity and authenticity.
I am here to support people who support others. If you or your organization could benefit from my knowledge and skill set, I am happy to discuss options with you and to craft a customized plan that will serve your needs.
