National Field Director
Startup junkie and co-founder in business development, politics and social justice. Behind all of her work is the essence of ethos and philosophy: She is a community organizer and disciple of Fred Ross, mentor to Cesar Chavez. She has worked on campaigns from Capitol Hill to Silicon Valley. She joined Brand New Congress in May 2018.
She likes to nerd out as a contributor to 2211: Journal of the Best of Space Philosophy (http://2211.world/author/ephoenix/), write poetry, and sing jazz and play folk rock guitar to stay inspired.
