Rodgers has over 15 years of experience working in schools and youth development non-profit organizations in California, Minnesota, Louisiana, D.C., and South Africa. Rodgers' experience collaborating with educators, activists, and mental health professionals across the nation have fueled her passion for transforming systems and policies impacting disenfranchised communities, including holding space as a ‘Circle Keeper’ or Restorative Justice Facilitator.
Rodgers has always had a love for music and wrote her first song in 10th grade.
