Kali is a highly committed professional with a background in public health, leadership, and digital optimization. She is a passionate and committed social justice advocate with the drive to disrupt and break out of social norms… and significantly contribute to reducing and preventing established patterns of environmental and global health degradation. A visionary who elevates those around her, working to swing the pendulum of equity and global consciousness, Kali brings the heart, soul, and driving force behind all external communications for the Alliance for Tribal Clean Energy.
Graduate training in global health and program development led to her work at Bioversity International, where she designed and implemented community-based development projects in both Kenya and India where her work was largely focused on connecting with rural farmers and facilitating critical discussions around neglected and underutilized fruit species.
Following extensive field experience, where she witnessed first-hand global health and environmental issues, Kali has recognized the need for efficient and comprehensive solutions in public health – starting with awareness. In direct response, she founded STCK Design, a creative agency based out of Portland, OR, focused on elevating the branding, design, and messaging of nonprofits who are making major impacts around the world.
Kali has spent four years working closely with the Indigenous leaders at the Alliance for Tribal Clean Energy where she serves as the Communications Director. With community-voice as her top priority, Kali works to bring the public health lens, human-centered design and data-driven approach to all marketing and communications at the Alliance.
