I am the Project Coordinator at Working Films. Since joining Working Films in 2005, I have coordinated and managed targeted audience engagement campaigns for theatrical releases such as The Real Dirt on Farmer John, After Innocence, and The Blood of My Brother. I also direct the outreach for a multi-media curriculum project, New Faces: Latinos in North Carolina and have collaborated on the development of the outreach campaigns for Everything’s Cool and the Iraq Media Action Project.
Prior to joining the Working Films staff , I was the Program Director at Amigos Internacional, a Latino advocacy and education center in Wilmington, NC. Currently I am involved in making progressive change in the Wilmington community through my position on the board of directors for the Southeastern Alliance for Community Change. I spent over a year in Latin America, where I studied Spanish and taught English as a foreign language. As a corps member of the nationally recognized program Teach for America I taught first grade in a bilingual program in Phoenix, AZ for two years.
I have a Masters in Education from Arizona State University and a BA in Sociology from Wake Forest University.
