At my core, I operate on a few basic principles:
People have asked why I chose social work. My response?
I'm obligated to make sure that Black people are ok.
Whether that is Black parents or social work professionals, I want you to THRIVE.
For yourself. For your family, For our community.
While my brand gets an upgrade, this webspace is where we can connect in the meantime and I can help you navigate your path as awesomely, weirdly, or uncomfortably as you need to. While you are here, should you arrive at some 'lightbulb' moment because of something I said, that would tell me that my work is done. :)
Read, laugh, cry, ask questions, ponder, curse, comment, do whatever in the name of thriving while Black. If you need something more one-on-one with me, hit the "WHAT'S NEXT” link above, and let's chat.
