I thrive in spreading and sharing stories, both the inspirational and challenging kind.
Through my natural curiosity of social justice, audience engagement, and human behavior, I feel most at home working on ventures that marry journalism with social activism.
With a BA in Black Studies and Sociology, and an MA in Urban Affairs, I utilize my academic background to form my own unique approach to writing - generating viral digital content while creating a larger space for underrepresented peoples, issues, and discussions.
My managerial experience in team leadership and strategic partnerships provides me with the tools to uplift organizations in digital media, academia, and the non-profit sector. As a consultant, my goal is to help organizations achieve the results they need fiscally, socially, and ethically.
As the Managing Editor of Her Agenda, I oversaw and edited all written and social content for a platform that generates over one million impressions per month. I have and continue to build relationships with award winning media outlets and female influencers from HBO, CNN, and The New York Times, and more. As a freelance writer, I’ve contributed to coveted and viral platforms such as Elite Daily, Thought Catalog, I Am Women Project, and more.
