ABOUT THE OWNER
I am a Certified Diversity Equity and Inclusion professional whose passion for education around DEI is grounded in education, but motivated by my experience growing up in the deep south. It is my desire to use historical and experience based education to share the challenges of DEI for the purpose of creating equity for all humanity. I am a compassionate connector that respects and seeks to connect with all humanity. As an African American professional I have served as US Civil Servant for over 24 years. I am a leadership and strategy coach who maximizes the opportunity to bring chaos to order, truth to power and justice to inequality. Having led numerous teams and projects I have developed an art for gaining the trust of colleagues and operating in a level of integrity that informs positive outcomes. A champion for trust and open engagement in the workplace, I have been successful in leading organizations to a place of unity and success.
A rocket Scientist at heart, one of the first to certify as a data systems officer in the Mission Control Center Houston for the International Space Station. This extraordinary opportunity proved to be invaluable as it helped me develop the leadership skills that would be instrumental throughout my career. Since then, I have held numerous roles within the agency. My passion for technical excellence, professional development, and eagerness to chart new territory sent me on the journey of DEI.
