Holding a Master of Social Work at the Erikson Institute in Chicago, Nani is proud to return home to Lowell to work at The Center for Hope and Healing. They hope to support and advocate for survivors in their journeys toward healing while fostering compassion and strength within CHH’s Survivor Services Team. Nani believes, that by centering the voices of the historically marginalized and oppressed in the movement to eradicate violence, we can change systems and repair the pain and hurt that have spread through generations.

Nani has previously worked in counseling, program development, education, advocacy, community organizing, and looks forward to integrating their skills in these areas into their work with folx at CHH and beyond. Nani’s clinical work is rooted in cultural/relational practices, psychodynamic frameworks, and systems theories and they understand survivors and their families through an intersectional lens.

When Nani is not at work, they are often found reading on the couch with their cat Wilson Frisk, visiting breweries with their partner, or cooking up something new in their kitchen.
