As a Communicator, I focus on (PINS)™ People, Issues, News, and Systems. I leverage my skills as a media-ready expert to covey messages across multiple mediums and platforms to raise awareness and social consciousness. I develop messaging and content that speaks to a diverse audience through informative engagement about issues that allow people to pause, press for accountability and impact humanity. "I speak when it matters most."
As a Connector, I weave the lens of public health, racial equity, vulnerability, interpersonal crimes, law enforcement, human rights, and social justice. I leverage my skills as an Intersectional SME to write policy, produce content, develop and implement strategies, create plans, identify problems, offer solutions, and influence perspectives at the table and in the room. "I get things done and make things happen."

"I bring experience and add value."
As a Champion, I stand in the gap for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other women of color (BIWOC) in business, Mompreneurs, leaders in the boardroom, and the C-Suite. I am committed to women's furtherance to be Paid, Elevated, Advanced, and Recognized (PEAR)™ for their expertise, diverse experiences, agile leadership, influence, and the value they bring to every table, room, and space by their mere presence. On the back of my cape are the words. "It's handled, is what you see on my way out. "I empower others."
