"Change takes courage." - AOC
In 2020, I helped create EDIFY, an advocacy initiative conceived by Nicole Johnson, founder of the nonprofit organization M.O.V.E.
The initiative offers a 5 week program that nourishes advocates as they explore their identities and the needs of vulnerable communities. Inspired by the lunch counter sit-ins of the 60s, it utilizes storytelling and presentation as catalysts for change. Participants connect with and edify one another through the EDIFY Justice Advocate App, building communities and courage. I serve as the Director of Curriculum and Presentation Manager, creating workbooks for facilitators and advocates, as well as outreach presentations.

The Edify Justice Advocates Podcast explores how Edify and the Harriet Tubman Effect Institute (HTEI) have been working to dismantle systemic racism in American workplaces. I'm the Executive Producer and Nicole Johnson is the host and Executive Editor. Along with Adam Shaff, Anya Jimenez, and Tony Ponella, we interview members of various organizations that seek to undergo transformation through HTEI and invite them to share how the 5 steps of Edify have become infused into their work.
First two episodes are out now! You can listen to them on any major streaming platform or on our website below.
Inspired by the work Immigrant Families Together does on behalf of asylum seeking families, I dedicated my birthday to raising funds for the organization. I produced a benefit concert, raising over $2,000, and hope to continue advocating for children separated from their families at the southwest US/Mexico border.
¡Hola a todos! I'm passionate about singing in my native tongue, as it connects me with friends and family in Argentina. I believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion for the Latinx theatre community will not be fully realized until a deep catalogue of Spanish language musicals are written/translated, with high caliber productions touring both American continents.
