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

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… but not right now! If you want to reach out, visit my contact page.
