I love crafting radically transformative learning spaces and enjoy the healing rhythms of African/Caribbean traditional dance. Claiming the heritage of Queen Nanny of the Maroons and Septima Clark, my work as a consultant, author, strategist, facilitator, and coach is rooted in a fierce commitment to the genius, power, and humanity within communities pursuing an end to systemic exploitation. Experience working in labor unions, immigrant rights/incorporation, higher education, leadership development, and global social justice philanthropy. Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, I reside in Flatbush, Brooklyn (Lenape land).
