  • I have a BA in English from The George Washington University. I’ve always loved literature and writing, so English was a natural choice. While there, I was president of the Black Student Union, started the Black Women’s Forum, and I joined Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. Community building became very important to me since I was away from home.
  • I interned at several non-profit and advocacy organizations in their communications departments and gained and interest in public relations as a career.
  • While finishing my degree, I was an account manager at a boutique corporate PR firm. Realized very quickly that I wanted to do issues-based communications and messaging.
  • I also started blogging regularly to give myself a creative outlet and practice my writing.
  • Since then, I have been published in Talk Poverty, SheKnows, and Revelist.com.
  • In 2008, I started another blog where I wrote about politics, feminism, and Mad Men.
  • During this time, I was the Communications Associate at a progressive leadership training institute. Realized I really enjoyed training facilitation, and gained an interest in social media strategy.
  • Unfortunately, I was laid off in 2010, and moved back in with my mother to regroup and figure out what was next for me. 
  • I crowd sourced my next job while in Los Angeles and became eventually attended the New Organizing Institute's New Media Bootcamp in 2012. 
  • Since then, I have provided social media strategy, assisted with SMS campaigns, and created digital content for NAACP, YWCA USA, Center Community Change, and others. 
  • Now, I am a digital marketing strategist, writer, and community builder who happens to be an unapologetic Black feminist. 
  • I keep cultural fluency and intersectionality at the forefront of the campaigns and clients I work with. 
  • I live in Rockville, MD with my husband, Neal. I am a traveler, a foodie, a yoga, a music junkie, and a makeup enthusiast. I am originally from Los Angeles with deep roots in Washington, DC where my people are from.
