Bio: As a social work macro-practitioner with decades of experience: licensed clinician, classroom and field instructor, non-profit leader, interdisciplinary teaching artist and emergent researcher- I utilize the expressive arts as a catalyst for self care, and change. I'm a Ph.d scholar-practitioner currently on hiatus at the dissertation stage. I am founder of The Empowerment Project, Inc. a grassroots non-profit foundation in Charlotte, NC. I work at the intersections of art, culture, gender, and community. My work is grounded in social justice and human rights; honoring the work of women, and the liberation of persons of Afrikan descent around the globe. A commissioned fiber artist and musician, I enjoy quiet time to write and reflect, creative collaborations, and world travel-especially by ocean liner and train.
