My Approach

With nearly 15 years of experience, including three years in-house at Mozilla, I am skilled at identifying what works and what does not. My data-driven approach to DEI focuses not only on my expertise in the subject matter, but also my passion for inclusive design methodologies. Together, we’ll co-design and build a stronger culture and more inclusive products and services.

If you are a leader who is hungry to make systemic change in your workplace and in the world, I want to partner with you!

I partner with leaders on their journey to lead authentically and inclusively.


I bring nearly 15 years of experience leading change in open-source technology communities, including three years leading diversity and inclusion at Mozilla. I am skilled at meeting leaders where they are and supporting them in making measurable and lasting improvements.

I analyze qualitative and quantitative HR data to diagnose where companies’ biggest diversity and inclusion issues are, and I work with internal stakeholders to co-design interventions based on research best practices and experience about what actually moves the needle.

I am an intersectional feminist who uses data and research to advocate for equality and inclusion.

My work on trans inclusion was featured in Forbes.

My research on digitization ethics is included in Dr. Safiya Noble’s book Algorithms of Oppression.

The BC Open Textbook Accessibility Toolkit, that I co-authored, won the Open Innovation Consortium’s Creative Innovation Award.

I’m excited to connect DEI strategy across the employee lifecycle through to core business services and products using inclusive design methodologies.

As someone who is mixed-race and queer, I know we live intersectional lives.

I have firsthand experience navigating systems that were not designed for people like me. Along with my work experience and education, I tap into these experiences to help co-design employee experiences to help people feel like they belong and can do their best work.

This work is deeply personal to me. I feel privileged to do it and I have a sense of responsibility to do it well.

My pandemic hobbies include the daily New York Times daily mini crossword, too many hours playing Fortnite and biking fast nowhere on my Peloton bike.
