As someone who is adopted and growing into her mid-century modern self, I have had questions about my family medical history remain unanswered. This gap in information not only got me in the habit asking what happens when I take this drug, what are the side effects of treatment, what are the benefits of managing it in ways that don’t come in a pill bottle, it also taught me the importance of asking the very questions we ask every day at MedShadow. Sometimes this information is all we have to go on. I have worked with nonprofits for the past decade, with an emphasis on community engagement and public awareness. My roles have included Executive Director, Equitable Communities; Teaching Artist Fellow, Community Word Project; and Network Faculty, National Center for Economic Education, a program of The Council for Economic Education. I was named a co-winner in the 2014 Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance Social Enterprise Showdown and currently serve on the board of directors of several nonprofits. When I am not writing grants for MedShadow Foundation I am writing fiction.
