Detroit-born, Houston-raised and Chicago-based, I’m an experienced strategist, facilitator and community engagement manager with a deep commitment to relational healing and creative self expression. I believe that joy and freedom are the natural outcomes of loving each other and ourselves. As a self-identified “disciple of joy,” I bring a deep curiosity to all of my work. My diverse background in social justice education, non-profit leadership, and non-fiction storytelling have created a unique blend of skills and interests.
I’m currently focused on exploring somatic healing on the personal, interpersonal, communal and ancestral levels. It’s this relational healing work alongside caring for my garden and nurturing my poetry practice that ground me on this spiritual journey of being human.
