Suiting up for a more just and equitable society


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. As of January 2020, I’m back in school! This time I’m studying social work with an emphasis in macro practice – practice aimed at bringing about change in organizational, community, and policy areas.

My goal is to help facilitate food security, economic justice, 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 meet basic needs and also thrive and reclaim humanity.

I do freelance consulting for developing and facilitating online and offline communication. If you’re looking for that, visit my contact page.
