Her diverse career also includes education program management with Mercy Corps, charitable giving for Federated Department Stores, coordination of political campaigns, and a half-decade working in Latin America in both government and NGO positions. She was a Leadership Development in Interethnic Relations Fellow 2000-2001, Community Builder Fellow for the Department of Housing and Urban Development 1999-2000, and an Urban Community Development Volunteer for Peace Corps in Ecuador 1996-98.
