Detroit-born, Houston-raised and Chicago-based, I’m an experienced facilitator and project manager with a deep commitment to relational healing, community building and creative self expression. I believe that joy and freedom are the natural outcomes of loving each other and ourselves. As a self-identified disciple of joy and relationship advocate, my belief in a future that’s abundant enough to hold and nourish all of is represented in the process of photosynthesis; as we turn our face to the light within and without, that sweet communion results in a kind of perennial Spring. My belief in “sugar from sun” has become a personal ethos and guiding light for my many vocations.
My diverse background in social justice education, non-profit leadership, non-fiction storytelling and placemaking have created a unique blend of skills and interests. I’m currently focused on guiding somatic healing in my body, my relationships and my communities. These relationships inspire me to continue forward in the spiritual journey of being human and to co-creating realities conducive for liberated living.
