About Joi


Louisiana band kid all “growed” up is inspired to be an agent of systemic and sustainable change. That’s the gist of it. I hold a BA in sociology from Louisiana Tech University and an MA in communication and leadership from Gonzaga University. Since January 2020, I’m back in school studying social work with a concentration in community practice.

My goal is to help facilitate economic justice, food security, environmental justice, accessibility, gender and sexuality inclusion, and other forms of liberation. I want to create clear pathways and implement evidenced-based interventions to help people get the resources they need to live and to thrive and reclaim humanity.

I also do freelance consulting for developing and facilitating online and offline communication and leadership… but not right now! If you want to reach out, visit my contact page.
