What ties do you have to Culver City?
I am a CA transplant and I’ve only lived in Culver City. I fell in love with the charm and feel of Culver City. The city is welcoming, diverse, progressive and very family-oriented. It’s the perfect environment to raise my daughter.
What experience or expertise do you have which qualifies you to serve on the GPAC?
I am an attorney and education equity advocate. I work as the Associate Director of Student Support at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. I earned my J.D. from Rutgers School of Law and B.A. in Economics from Spelman College.
What other resources (foreign language skill, participation in a local organization, practical skill, etc.) might you bring to enhance the quality of the General Plan process?
I am a graduate of the IDEX Fellowship in Hyderabad, India, Los Angeles African American Women’s Public Policy Institute and the New Leaders Council- Los Angeles Chapter Institute. I serve on the Board of the Rutgers University Black Lawyers Alumni Network and am a 2018-2019 American Bar Association Young Lawyer Division Scholar. I believe these experiences have shaped my passion to represent my community and gives me a unique perspective to contribute to the General Plan process in an effective way.
What motivates you to participate in the General Plan process?
I am a millennial woman of color and parent motivated to contribute toward a more equitable community for all. I am very invested in the future of Culver City and I am honored to be a member of the General Plan Advisory Committee.
