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