Prior to joining DLIFLC, she served in several non-profit organizations that support immigrant communities, including as the President of the Board of the Arab Cultural and Community Center in San Francisco and a founding board member of the Bay Area Arabic School in the San Francisco Bay Area. As an immigrant herself, she faced challenges relating to fairness and inclusiveness, and therefore became an inter-cultural competency advocate and conflict resolution trainer.
