My first career was in nonprofit fundraising, and when I went to grad school for photojournalism, it was with the intention of telling stories to create positive change in society. I had a baby along the way and my focus shifted a bit, but I've always planned to do more work for nonprofits.
That's why I was thrilled to have an opportunity to shoot for one of the organizations that means the most to me personally—Planned Parenthood. I was hired as the still photographer on a big audio/video team covering the March for Abortion Access. What a thrill!
