Originally born and raised in Chicago, I've done this work for years in several areas of the country, from the East Coast to the West Coast and even in South Africa. This has broadened my reach and given me a well-rounded perspective on how various DEI topics take the forefront of certain communities and not others, as well as how to interact with a plethora of different people.
I've worked with early elementary aged children, adolescents, college students, parents, educators, company executives, doctors and medical personnel and small organizations.
Throughout my 13 years in this specialized field, I've instilled in others a sense of civic responsibility, allyism/allyship, accountability, and advocacy. Every policy made and practice implemented has created a long-lasting trickle down effect that has reverberated into many communities over time.
