Day Job
Executive Director, TYPROS

What are three words that describe you? Community-connector, helpful, compassionate

Why are you involved with the League?
I believe ensuring every eligible voter is registered, educated about candidates and issues in our community, AND able to access their polling location come election day is incredibly important. The League works towards this end each and every day.

My favorite experience with the League has been:
When TYPROS partnered with the League for the 2020 virtual mayoral candidate forum. The event was livestreamed on social media and thousands of voters tuned in to hear what the candidates had to say.

On the weekend, you can find me:
At the Tulsa Farmer’s Market or reading a book outdoors

When was the last time you danced?
This morning, silly dancing around the house is a daily activity

What is your favorite Tulsa activity?
Running into friends and colleagues out and about at local coffee shops or restaurants downtown

What are words you live by?
It is better to light a candle than to curse the dark
