Her commitment to justice led her to 15 years of service as a public defender, 5 years in El Salvador in human rights work, and many years connecting churches in the United States and ELCA companions in Latin America and the Caribbean. Currently, she is the Program Director of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America AMMPARO strategy to accompany migrant children and families with protection, advocacy, representation, and opportunities. This holistic, whole church response to accompany migrants encompasses work in countries of origin, transit, and destination. It involves the accompaniment of migrants in communities and the courtroom. Sanctuary work is also a part of ELCA AMMPARO.
Being a single mother, traveling, reading, enjoying the performing arts, running, yoga, supporting civil dialogue, and working for racial justice keep her busy.
