Louisiana has some of the highest HIV and sexually transmitted disease (STD) rates in the nation, and communities of color and LGBTQ communities are the most heavily impacted by these and other health concerns. I hope to help reduce these disparities in New Orleans and across Louisiana by shifting organizations’ understanding of systemic oppression and fostering unconventional partnerships to address racism, transphobia, and homophobia.

I am a native Louisianan and Cajun who works with the Louisiana Office of Public Health STD/HIV Program. I am dedicated to working for social justice and building meaningful relationships with communities served through the health department’s STD/HIV prevention and services work.
