What is your role as the YWCA Mentor Duluth Program Advocate?

As the YWCA Mentor Duluth Advocate, I work in collaboration with our Girl Power! program, providing support and mentoring opportunities for our participants and their families.

 

What do you like about your work with the YWCA?

The mission of the YWCA is to empower women and eliminate racism, work I hold close to my heart. I believe mentoring is one tool for doing that. By nurturing relationships that bridge gaps between generations, neighborhoods, and backgrounds, we are working toward building a strong and inclusive community in Duluth.

 

Hobbies and interests:

I spend my time outside of work making art, playing in all the beautiful wild spaces that surround us, and dismantling patriarchy wherever I can— all in the company of my sweet, brave dog, Whoopi.
