Spent over twenty years as a national and international community organizer addressing both social and developmental issues.

With specific focus on civil rights, race relations, educational, social, economic, and political. Spent over 4 years lobbying on Capitol Hill for gender equality and student rights with the American Association of University of Women (AAUW).
Provide executive level support for the development of international & domestic corporations which includes strategic human capital development, developing strategic financial forecasting and operational planning and management to improve the effectiveness of your corporation.

I have a lot of labels, but they are just that - labels. They don't define me. What defines me is my altruistic nature. I'm in the business of people and community. Whether it's helping people succeed as business owners, or within their personal or professional lives. That means I have a compassionate and empathetic heart and every endeavor I take on - must first touch my heart THEN it must make business sense.
Now for the labels and the story, I am a 6th generation Washingtonian who grew up in poverty. My mother always instilled in me that education is the key to success. She also told me that I will ALWAYS struggle because I am Black AND a woman. Something to this day, I am passionate about changing that mentality for the next generation of women.
So, when I received my MBA in Finance, she was surprised that instead of working in the banking or corporate field, I choice to invest my time in the nonprofit arena. Becoming an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer was my proudest moment -- not obtaining my MBA. Oh, also representing AmeriCorps Alums in President Obama's Inauguration parade in 2009 - So sweet. I was even shown on CNN!
Since then, I have been using my business acumen to develop innovative solutions to amass social capital to address social and economic challenges. I have a strong track record in developing and implementing various community and business initiatives using corporate business strategies in the US, Europe, and Africa. I've worked with multi-million dollar domestic & international corporations as well as NGO's.
But my passion still lies within helping people. I am a social entrepreneur who leverages her experiences, education, and status to develop and execute initiatives that solve the biggest community problems. I am the President of the Board of the Directors for the Washington DC branch of the American Association for University of Women, President of the Board of Directors for the Mary Church Terrell Foundation in Washington DC, Chief Executive Officer for an international nonprofit organization - Journey to Your Promised Land, Inc, an AmeriCorps VISTA alumni, Principal for Webster's Wealth Management Solutions Corporation, and a TEDx Organizer for two projects - TEDxUStreetWomen and TEDxUStreetSalon.
I have a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) degree in Finance from Trinity Washington University, a Bachelors of Science degree in Organizational Management from Columbia Union College, and a certification in community building and organizing from NeighborWorks America.

BOLD + BRILLIANT= BADASS
Speakers. Networking. Connections
What do we mean when we say, Bold + Brilliant = Badass? To be Bold, means you are willing to speak out for the issues that mean the most to you. To be Brilliant, means you have the experience, knowledge, and passion needed to advocate for your idea. When you combine Bold + Brilliant, the results is a Badass. Being a Badass means that, despite your fear, any potential backlash/criticism, or how unpopular your idea maybe to some, you will still push forward to share your truth.
Bold + Brilliant = Badass is our Mantra!
Are you ready to be a part of a network and connect with individuals who are Bold, Brilliant and Badass?
I decided to expand the TEDxUStreet brand because I recognized that I was missing a critical market audience – men. The TEDxUStreetWomen conference is considered to be the signature event of the TEDxUStreet brand. TedxUStreetSalon events provide additional value to the brand by having several smaller event before and after the TEDxUStreetWomen conference. These events do not to replace each other, but complement each other. TEDxSalons are designed to be small but impactful. A critical element of salon is lively discussions, allowing attendees to actively participate in the event. With much smaller audiences, salons bring attendees togetherin more intimate spaces, and with more chances to get know and exchange ideas with each other.
The Mary Church Terrell Foundation
We know firsthand what a struggle it can be for girls and young women, from low income families and/or challenging backgrounds, to pursue higher education. It takes resources, encouragement and a sense of possibility. Our vision is to work together with like-minded stakeholders in Washington DC to provide scholarships to girls and young women. Our goal is to change a young woman’s life in a most positive and profound way through education. Education is the key that will open so many doors, not least of which is the door to an informed and rational mind. And educated women are likely to ensure that their daughters are educated as well, so this gift of education is passed forward to the next generation.
American Association of University Women (AAUW)
Advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. Since our founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – by Marianne Williamson
