My road in life took a while to figure out.
I was born in California, but raised in Texas—my experiences with racism as a teenager inspired me to help other people feel included.
Attended Spelman College where I received my degree in political science and international relations with the goal of one day working in government in Washington, D.C.
During my junior year, I studied abroad in South Africa and volunteered abroad in Costa Rica.
After returning to the U.S., I decided to switch my focus from political science to communications and media.
My first internship out of college was working for MTV where I was able to work on projects with VH1 and BET—this is what first sparked my interest in a career in diversity.
Got a job working for Viacom in New York City as the Diversity & Employee Resource Group Project Manager.
Moved to Atlanta, GA to start my family and worked for Cox Communications for a few years.
After being an active user on LinkedIn promoting my work in diversity, Facebook reached out to me and offered me a job—I'm now their Global Diversity & Inclusion Engagement Leader.
Keep following my journey
