I am an author, speaker, racial justice strategist, and facilitator of intimate spaces that center care and connection among Black people and people of color. In August 2023, I self-published my first book White Women Cry and Call Me Angry: A Black Woman’s Memoir on Racism in Philanthropy.
I am also the founder of Collective Work, a consultancy devoted to helping organizations answer the question: What liberatory practices can we collectively cultivate so that our strategy is powerfully and authentically executed?
What else can I share? I am committed to my health and wellness. This means making radical decisions every day to protect them both, including spending most of my time outside of the United States. I live in Washington, DC but spend most of my time in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
About The Book
White Women Cry and Call Me Angry is a collection of 18 essays about my experiences with racism at work. In many ways, this book has been a call to community. It has been a catalyst for many of us to come out of hiding, bear witness to each other’s stories, build community, and heal. The book has sold close to 2,000 copies since I published it in August 2023! Conversations with readers have been so meaningful. Even fun! Here are just a few of the questions I have been asked while on my book tour and some of my responses. I hope you will purchase the book, share with others, and join me at a future book talk or event.
Coming in 2024:
A Support Group for Black Women and Other Women of Color in Philanthropy

Each month, I share reflections on my author journey and dive into what it means to build restorative spaces and experiences that support Black women and other women of color.
