I like using grassroots efforts to successfully achieve results.

I have a decade of experience in the political consulting industry plus numerous years in the educational field, acquiring a lifetime of proficiency in my organizational skills and purposeful people know-how role. As an Operations Manager, I oversee the various aspects of delivery management, daily operations, supply chain management, inventory management, and compliance. As Field Operations Manager, I lead numerous multicultural teams across six countries. I believe that enjoying one’s work and embracing the team’s differences is what sets us apart from other international teams. I effectively translate the client’s strategy into key deliverables for the teams across the region, enabling them to operate like a well-oiled machine. I have worked extensively in public relations growing my network and providing targeted solutions to a diverse client base. This experience moved me to see the power of grassroots and the possibilities in not only the corporate realm but also the political world.

Ireland just expanded the legal definition of domestic violence to include emotional and psychological abuse.

As part of the country’s Domestic Violence Act 2018, which went into effect on New Year’s Day, “coercive control” is now recognized as domestic violence and is punishable by up to five years in prison. The legislation defines coercive control as “psychological abuse in an intimate relationship that causes fear of violence, or serious alarm or distress that has a substantial adverse impact on a person’s day-to-day activities.”https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ireland-emotional-abuse-crime_us_5c2e1b60e4b0407e9088c6e5?utm_source=women_fb&ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000046&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages&fbclid=IwAR143FWjhfdFQNjMUduQ1Scyn04dnM2xXBtPkSBBOyL7Mh5WluFS_benPCM

“Society will no longer tolerate the appalling breach of trust committed by one partner against the other,” Ireland’s Minister for Justice and Equality said. And I cannot agree more.

It is a crime in the US but there's no set of guidelines in place on how to prove abuse and police often side with men in these type of complaints and charges are never filed.

Even bloodied and bruised isn’t taken seriously in the US, in my experience.

Emotional and Psychological abuse goes unnoticed so much amongst children and teenagers. This young souls shouldn’t have to go through this trauma. I wish we had laws and regulations like this in India

This is so crucial! Especially in the family court system, where innocent children are involved!
