I work for collective healing with social justice organizations. Together, we create space for equity, opportunities for communities of color, and belonging.

I further participatory storytelling for ongoing transformation: What Creates Change?” speaks to ending violence through survivor, advocate, and community voices.

During the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I directed Together We Are New York, a community-based multimedia poetry project to highlight the voices of Asian Americans. I co-led the creative expression workshop, Movement to Power, to confront gender violence and enable embodied healing.

In 2008, I won the inaugural SONY South Asian Excellence Award for Social Service for my leadership fighting violence against women. Discover more about my consulting services.
