It's a Wrap, 2020!

Updated: Apr 5



The reality is that 2020 was a transitional period, which allowed me to reflect and question the status quo. This year didn't go without its fair number of challenges, but gratitude and joy pulled me through.


There are SO many people doing impactful work in the city of Boston, and I'm happy to be apart of the journey. A special thank you to my customers (old and new), collaborators, and loving friends and family.


2020 in Review đź’›


I've worked alongside leaders and entrepreneurs within various organizations who disrupt spaces to create change. Most importantly, to use their platform to make sure our network and community feel safe and heard.
