Passionate About Collective Liberation

I did make a roadmap to get to my work. I followed my heart. I leaned into service. I said yes to my own liberation. I said no to playing small or hiding who I am.  I am a Black, Queer Woman leaning into healing, wholeness and liberation. I am inviting you to join me. 

My work shows up in different ways. I am in a practice of welcoming new and expansive ways to uphold the things I value. I began to hold space for others to see and accept all of themselves in 2006 we I began a career as a natural hairstylist. In 2010, I co-founded a community space that looked a lot like a salon from the outside. We did hair AND we held space for community. It was in that space I was first pulled into the practice of yoga and mindfulness. In 2018, I retired from being a stylist and closed my salon to focus full time on the service of making wellness spaces equitable, accessible, sustainable and safe for BIPoC. When I took that step I did not see the entire path. In honesty, I am still on the path with this work.

 

I serve as a trainer, teacher, guide and coach. I also serve as a founding member of The Sanctuary In The City, a Charlotte based non-profit that focuses on equitable healing spaces for BIPOC all over the world. While I enjoy working with, supporting and hosting groups for workshops, retreats and trainings, I love working with folks one on one to uncover their own truths, joys, value and perceived obstacles. In 2018, I began offering Mindful Coaching as a way to support folks through the ebbs and flows of this human existence. Coaching is special to me and I am deeply honored by everyone who has trusted me to be with them on their path. 

At my heart I am a creative being. I love to cook plant based food & make with my hands. Part of my creative process is writing. I am grateful to say I have two published books available and a new book coming to life in my mind and on my laptop. I am also a collage artisit. That is a new title that I am embracing and sharing with the world. I am grateful for all the support my creative work has received over the years. I look forward to the creativity inside of me unfurling into the world around me.
