In my current role, I lead activities in support of the Health Center Program by activating and accelerating innovation, exploring initiatives to advance public health priorities, building capacity and partnership to advance emerging priorities, and advancing health equity. I am an expert in cultural and linguistic competency, addressing health disparities, implementing health equity, and understanding the social determinants of health for assessing the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of underserved and marginalized populations. I have led federal interagency committees, stakeholder workgroups, strategic planning, and national coordination to develop policies and procedures. I have developed and disseminated national level guidance, training, and tools to promulgate promising practices. I have background in applied social science research, program evaluation, policy analysis, and developing data-driven solutions.
