A union member of 18 years and certified Intimacy Coordinator, my heart is rooted in the importance of members feeling empowered, heard, and safe. For 4 years I have advocated for the 1400+ survivors who disclosed their trauma to me. Their experiences directly informed the changes that SAG-AFTRA made to meet the #MeToo revolution: from audition policies, member emergency hotline, successful legislative reforms, and safety protocols achieved in the 2020 TV/Theatrical contract. I'm proud we continue advancing our vision of a safer workspace. I would be honored to serve Los Angeles membership and echo your voices, ideas, and hopes.
