Speaker, Writer, Diversity and Inclusion Trainer
Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, I am suspending all speaking engagements and diversity training workshops until January, 2021.
I am taking this time to nurture my family and community during this remarkable season.
I will also use this time to complete several writing projects.
Be well. Be wise. Be kind.
