I believe impacted communities hold the solutions to society's most pressing problems. Only through gathering impacted communities can we really achieve sustainable solutions. I started ToGather in 2023 to lend my skills working with and for government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and the business community to drive human-centered decision-making to help shape program and project decisions.
