About Me

 

I am a writer, traveler and outdoor woman. In 2017, I launched a project that centered women of color, feminism, equity & inclusion and travel. It's called On She Goes

On She Goes remains a piece of creative work that is part of larger worldwide movements that are dedicated to making space for marginalized people. We created a space on the internet for travel writing by and for women of color. We created a safe space for women of color. We created a community. 

In addition to producing creative work that intersects race, gender, equity and adventure - I'm writing, strategizing, storytelling and creating meaningful pieces of work for brands, non-profits and creative agencies.
