Vice President for Policy & Communication

With an eclectic professional career, I am thrilled to have finally landed at Exodus as the Vice President for Policy & Communication. Prior to my role here at Exodus, I worked at NYU Langone Health in Government and Community Affairs helping to oversee Government and Community portfolio for the hospitals in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Prior to that, I was a clinical social worker in child welfare under several umbrellas including, Therapeutic Foster Care and Preventive Services in the Bronx. In addition, I worked as a private therapist specializing in adolescents and couples’ therapy. I also lived in the Northeast of Brazil for two years and worked as an English teacher. I hold a Bachelors in Social Worker from Adelphi University and a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University.
