Children's Aid Society
Fostering Youth Success Alliance Coordinator
January 2014 — Present
I lead a statewide alliance focused on improving the policies that govern the child welfare system, and the overall well being and educational, health, mental health, housing outcomes and for the 20,000 children and youth in the New York State foster care system. Through the identification and research of issues that affect children and youth currently or formerly in in care, I mobilize communities and advocate for improved policies, greater resources, and better services.
