I am the Chief Diversity Officer for the City of Chicago - - I am a Servant-Leader committed to helping people and their communities become their best selves. A veteran of business, civic and community organizations, I have a demonstrated record of success in the field of organizational change management, strategic planning and institutional advancement. I bring decades of experience in business and relationship development, non-profit governance and organizational leadership.

As an adult learner, my interests range from Business Strategy to Arts & Culture. I am also interested in Biographies, Mentoring/Coaching, and Basketball.

I am currently Chief Diversity Officer (CDO), for the City of Chicago, responsible for executive-level strategy and the development and implementation of the City’s policies and strategies for recruiting and maintaining a workforce that reflects the diversity of Chicago’s population. My role includes cultivating a work environment that welcomes and continues to support that diversity. The CDO strategy will be executed by partnering and collaboratively working with The Office of the Mayor and the City Council, City departments, and bargaining units.
