I Do This Work Because…
I do this work because I care about the integrity of data, and I believe that when collected and analyzed correctly, data will demonstrate that certain communities continue to experience a compounded level of disadvantage based on the environment and place in which they live, work, and grow. Further, I do this work to provide rigorous data analysis to inform actionable plans that lead to equitable impacts for all.
