Marja Possner

Marja (she/her) was born in South Korea and was adopted to the United States as a young baby. Throughout her upbringing growing up in a predominantly white community as a BIPOC and as a Deaf person, she has developed a vast cultural understanding of intersectionality barriers as a BIPOC and a Deaf person.
With the lived experience and deep understanding of her intersectionality, she moved to New York and Colorado to advance her education and career in the social services field. With 18 years of experience working in various roles working on multiple projects, working with external and internal teams and maintaining an extensive community network Statewide and Nationally, she is excited to bring her experience and knowledge to her role as the Community Empowerment Advocate to build and sustain community relationships with DOVE and survivors.
Outside of work, you will find Marja cooking or baking, taking her dog out on a walk, going on an adventure somewhere new or traveling the world.
