She currently resides in the northwest where she works as an applied anthropologist within the mental health division of the Veteran Affairs Portland Health Care System. Her scholarship is informed by a commitment to reproductive justice nourished over a decade of advocacy as a community organizer, doula, and talkline advocate.
