My facilitation work started in the classroom, when, in 2010, I stepped away from my work in the arts to teach in an adult literacy program at a rural community college. This work dovetailed into a position at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I co-led Interactive Theatre Carolina and trained and facilitated intensively across a range of issues that met at the intersection of health, wellness, and social justice. In particular, my facilitation focused on using tools of the Theatre of the Oppressed for the purposes of racial equity training that connected interpersonal experience to an understanding of systemic injustice. I've also facilitated with UCLA's AMP! project, Cultivate Leadership, and I continue to partner with Theater Delta as a facilitator and trainer of other facilitators. 

In May 2021 I completed a Master of Arts in Social Change degree at the Graduate Theological Union’s progressive multireligious seminary in Berkeley, CA, Starr King School for the Ministry, and in October of this year I’ll be ordained as an interfaith chaplain. Pairing this experience with Clinical Pastoral Education has further expanded my comprehension of systems of advantage and disadvantage at a macro level as well as the ways our lives can transform through engaging the spirit of these big questions at the one-on-one level.
