About me.

I am obsessed with seeing Black and women of color win in life.

I currently reside in Boston. I direct 826 Boston's Writers' Room program supporting K-12 teachers and students. I am a founding board member of Boston Art Review’s (BAR). I had the pleasure of guest editing  “Revel in Black Excellence,” a section in their sixth issue celebrating Black artists in Boston. In 2018, I was named one of seven Boston Artists-in-Residence by Mayor Marty Walsh exploring how art influences government policy impacting our community. As a writer, my work focuses on how women can use writing as a tool for healing and advocacy.

My first collection of poetry entitled Water Carrier inspired by Solange's "A Seat at the Table" was released in October 2018. I am the creator of the Boston’s Most Resilient Women project which tells the resiliency stories of women of color. I developed the Boston Women in the Workplace survey. I am also the founder of Girls, Write! a creative writing and publishing program for girls of color in Boston.  
I love God. I am obsessed with seeing women of color win in life. If I could have a bottomless mimosas brunch with five fierce women alive, it would be Issa Rae, Angela Davis, Tracee Ellis Ross, Elaine Welteroth and Solange.

When I am not writing, you can find me curating a new vegan or pescetarian recipe in my kitchen or eating my way through eclectic cities internationally.

What's important to me.

Intention, collaboration, and legacy building are the foundational pillars of how I approach my work. I do nothing without intention. From the food I cook, clients I work with, topics I write about, or whom I spend my time with in my private life. I approach my work with thoughtfulness to ensure that what I create is intoxicatingly inspiring and makes the world a better place.

Intention

Intention, collaboration, and building legacy are the pillars of how I approach my work.   

Collaboration

Community over everything! I believe in thought partnership during the beginning end of every single project that I produce.
