Though there are many questions to consider in a good workshop- I especially like to focus on these two:
(1) Who are you? AND (2) How can you serve?
As a workshop facilitator, I enjoy leading groups to answer these questions and more through the use of meditative journaling, visualization, creativity and activism. Every workshop I hold is intersectional- steeped in feminist ideas and values. It is my belief that ALL our identities matter, and because they matter they inevitably affect how, and what, we choose to advocate for in our daily lives.
That being said, check out the modules below to see what types of workshops I offer. I am currently based in Columbus, Ohio; but I am originally from the North East, and would be willing to travel in that region and the Mid-West. If you would like to see who I have worked with before, click HERE, or you can CONTACT ME here for rates, workshop outlines, and other information.

#BlackGirlThriving…Mammy, Jezebel, Sapphire, Angry Black Women- historically, black women have been forced into myths that we did not choose. This workshop is about taking those myths back!
