Theatre-Based Body Language Training
I spent four years developing my unique, theatre-based approach to body language training with the Buffalo Police Department in Buffalo, NY, USA.
Reshaping Law Enforcement
It’s well-known that police can have complicated relationships with the communities they serve. With my unique, theatre-based approach, I help police use writing, role play, and improvisation to reshape how they engage with communities. Together, we work toward fostering safer communities where everyone feels respected and valued. At the core of my approach are four foundational pillars: building mutual trust, fostering empathy, mastering de-escalation, and enhancing cultural competence.
Recognition and Impact
My innovative four-year partnership with the Buffalo Police Department garnered recognition from multiple news outlets in WNY, was featured in NYS and international press, and was awarded the 2021 Arts Services Inc. Spark Award for Arts Integration. I’ve also presented on this program at several state events, including the New York Women In Law Enforcement Conference.
