With decades of experience as a community activist, advocate and organizer, she is a recognized change agent within public health in the United States. Emotionally impacted by the suicidal crisis of a mentee, she co-founded, with that mentee Tracey Medeiros, A Voice at the Table, a grassroots, soul-care movement for the family/friends emotionally impacted by the suicidal crises of a loved one.
