I know if I [tell a story], I’m going to do it right and I’m going to do it in a way that uplifts people, that humanizes them, that holds space for who they are.

My road in life has been direct.
I started my career in radio, working as a radio personality, interviewing artists and celebrities, and reporting on concerts.
As I got older, I wanted to work in a space with more substance, so I transitioned into TV news.
I started as a multimedia journalist, which taught me a lot about the industry and gave me the confidence and tenacity that really set the stage for my career.
I worked my way up to news anchor, where I continued to amplify voices that were typically ignored and used my platform to make a difference in my community.
After getting displaced from my job when I had a baby, I was determined to keep doing what I loved even if I couldn’t do it through traditional outlets.
This ultimately pushed me to become an independent journalist.
In 2021, I founded BLCK Press, a now two-time Emmy award-winning media news company that tells stories about Black and brown communities across America.

I elevate stories from Black and brown communities, driving social change through impactful journalism.
