Advocacy Writing

Updated: Sep 18

As of January 10th, I work as a senior policy analyst at the Center for American Progress in Washington, DC. The work that I do is housed in Early Childhood Policy, advocating for comprehensive investments in a unified child care system and examining what a family-friendly (and education-friendly) policy landscape can look like.
