My Why- A Personal Statemet
I’m a Texas native living in California.
Over the past 3 decades, I’ve learned that people change and so does everything around us. It’s like we’ve been tricked into thinking predictability and stability are a given. Ha! Jokes on us! I’ve made my fair share of shifts and turns. I’m still figuring out how to live in this vast, beautiful, and sometimes cruel world. I’m always evaluating, learning and growing in consciousness.
As a Black lesbian woman, I believe in an intersectional approach to sustainable change. I have a deep commitment to fueling diversity and inclusion efforts and success through thought-partnership and strategy. I am very proud of my values rooted in community and relationship building.
Conflict work keeps me thinking criticially and engaged with diverse perspectives and experiences. I enjoy creating spaces where individuals are empowered to create their own solutions to their issues. It’s a gift I am grateful to share in every interaction I have in my work and personal life.
I travel to learn and free myself.
I really like coffee.
I love my blackness, my queerness, and my small-town roots.
I look forward to connecting and working with you.
I am a human having a chilling, yet inspiring lived experience. My purpose is to help people see through their breaking points, not avoid or run away when they reach them.
