Rorri has 20 years of experience in the field of social worker and human behavor. Being a licensed therapist gives her an edge into human behavior, interpersonal dynamics, use of a trauma informed lens, and ability to connect with others and build bridges across differences. She graduated with her masters degree from Columbia University in 2005 and received further clinical training from NYU and the Ackerman Institute for the Family.
On a personal note, she credits her initial passion and commitment to anti-racism/DEI/liberation work to being raised in a multiracial family and her experiences navigating her identity around whiteness and being Jewish in the U.S. She gained an early awareness of racial disparities from her experience of growing up white with a sibling of color in the suburbs of NYC. She also recognizes the way her identity and experiences of being married to a Muslim man of color and a being a mom of 2 young children that are multiracial, multifaith, and multicultural have impacted the way she shows up in this work.
