STRATEGIST COACH & CONSULTANT
I graduated from Brown University, where I double majored in International Relations & Africana studies. Six years later, I graduated from Fordham University School of Law where I received a Juris Doctorate and specializing in International Human Rights Law. At Fordham School of Law, I was a Stein Scholar (Public Interest Law and Ethics) and Co-Chair of the Stein Scholars Roundtable Series for one year. During law school, I interned with Human Rights Watch in the Africa Division and also represented low income clients while working at my law school’s law clinic. I also worked in Liberia for a few months with UNDP. After law school, I studied French in Senegal. From 2001-2013, I worked for the United Nations Peacekeeping/Political/PeaceBuilding Missions in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Senegal and Sierra Leone. During my service, I served as humanitarian affairs, political analyst/report writing officer and special assistant. I am a former UN Fellow (UNITAR) on conflict resolution and mediation. I am a Certified Professional Coach accredited by the International Coach Federation and a certified meditation teacher. I studied leadership ontology, phenomenology and informed trauma. Currently studying systematic narcissism and oppression, toxic patriarchy and hierarchies, narcissistic leadership, narcissistic abuse, effects of colorism on black and brown women and girls, toxic relationships and high conflict/antagonistic personalities. I support professionals who are experiencing a toxic workplace and/or dealing with toxic people in their personal life. I also provide psycho-education to my clients on the patterns of narcissistic abuse and toxic personalities. I enjoy helping clients in mapping out strategies in any area of their life to achieve certain goals. You can expect curiosity, empathy and compassion from me.
As a Black and African woman, I also know the additional tolls that we face in the world due to racism, sexism, cultural expectations and micro-aggressions and how that can manifest itself into all types of physical and mental health issues and impact overall happiness. I believe it is important to work with professionals who have had the proper training, can relate to your story and not brush your experiences aside because they have never been in your shoes.
