What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?

Spending time with my family, eating and traveling (sometimes napping). I can tell you about some of the best places to eat in New Orleans and the Bay Area. I’m still on the hunt for the best tacos in Seattle.

What was your proudest moment?

All day, every day, as a parent to my daughter Mele.

What drew you to Sound Discipline?

Every behavior tells a story. What connects me to the mission and work of Sound Discipline is my own story that unfolds on pathways of trauma, healing, learning, and belonging.
