Meet the Bounce Back Team

Director of Program

Pronouns: She/Her


✆ (919)-268-2146

As a longtime advocate for teens, I am thrilled to lead Bounce Back, Boomerang’s after school program, as Program Director!  I think that brave out-of-school spaces are critical for adolescents to build the skills, resilience and connections they need to dream their wildest dreams, and to begin the work to realize those dreams.  The trajectory of my own life has been deeply and positively impacted by high quality, grassroots community-based programs during my formative adolescent years, and am honored to be a part of that important, transformational work in service to teens here in Orange County.
