Welcome & About Me

I’m so glad that you’re here! Before you get into the blog, I want to let you know who I am & why I’m here.

Formally, I am a writer, speaker, student affairs / higher education professional in the area of multicultural student affairs, and co-founder of the nonprofit organization Mystic Soul. I received a B.A. in Integrative Arts (concentrations in Theater, Communication Arts, & Writing) and an M. Ed in College Student Affairs. I regularly contribute to a variety of online platforms on topics such as culture, spirituality, holistic wellness, womanism, entertainment, career, and more.

Through all of this, my mission is to offer information, ideas, & counter-cultural narratives that will empower readers to thrive and to lovingly & creatively challenge secular and sacred systems toward greater levels of inclusion!  And as Maya Angelou said, I strive to do all of these things “with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”.

You can book me for workshops (on art, spirituality, education, writing, career services, and more), keynotes, collaborative projects, and more. In the past, I’ve come to campuses, conferences, religious / sacred spaces, schools, panels, & additional venues! Click here to get in on #BookMe2017-2018.
