A native Memphian, I am currently a doctoral candidate (ABD) at the University of Memphis in the Department of Communication. My focus of concern is the intersections of rhetoric, race, religion, and gender. I am dedicated to studying the ways in which Black women re-claim their voices and re-construct their bodies as valued and whole.
My projects communicate the importance of radical self-reflection and redemptive self-love. Working with ages 0-99, I have partnered with schools, churches, and other organizations as a speaker, workshop coordinator, seminar presenter, and more.
My preaching centers the promise of liberation in the Sacred Text. Whether in the military or a traditional church, my sermonic lens consistently focuses on centering God’s direct involvement with humanity and God’s power to meet our fears with faith; heal our hurts into hope; and transform our doubts into deliverance.
