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.
Intention, collaboration, and 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, collaboration, and building legacy are the pillars of how I approach my work.
Community over everything! I believe in thought partnership during the beginning end of every single project that I produce.
