Chief Program Officer
Why I work at OneJustice:

I love OneJustice’s innovative approaches to the tough nonprofit management issues facing legal services organizations today – from our unique Executive Fellowship Program that trains leaders in the skills they need to run a thriving nonprofit to our consulting services, which support Boards of Directors and Executives.

Professional Background:

As Director of OneJustice’s Healthy Nonprofits Program, I direct the Executive Fellowship Program, and am responsible for developing continuing education programs for its Alumni, including in-person trainings and other support. I oversee OneJustice’s consulting work, providing trainings, resources, and coaching to the Boards of Directors and executives of legal services nonprofits throughout California on governance, fundraising, and strategic planning. In addition, I teach at the University of San Francisco School of Law as an adjunct professor. I have nearly 10 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector. Before joining OneJustice, I served as the Volunteer Manager at the Eviction Defense Collaborative and as a Program Manager at Breast Cancer Action. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature and Spanish from the University of California, Davis, and a J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law. I’m an Alumna of the Women’s Policy Institute, I earned BoardSource’s Certificate of Nonprofit Board Education, and I currently serve as the Chair of the University of San Francisco School of Law Public Interest Law Foundation Advisory Board..

I really love:

Backpacking in California’s wild places, traditional New Orleans-style jazz, and going on “how it’s made” tours.
