A letter to my brothers…

My brothers… Please be careful. You sound like the All Lives Matter crew when you question why Black Women require advocacy. You too can be an ally if you open your minds, and it would mean a lot.

LMS Discusses #NoThanks and “Work-Jacking” on The Back Pack Show LIVE

Sis, we have to make the…

So much so that I tweeted about it, and reflected my conversation with my 8 year old daughter. The tweet about my and my daughter’s reaction to Amanda Gorman, including it with tweets from the amazing organizer and public figure Stacy Abrams…

Looking Back: NSC 2020 by the Numbers

I have much to be grateful for despite the traumatic nature of 2020. In addition to securing my coaching certification in Feb and in July, my credential from the International Coaching Federation, there was the launch of NSC eLearning.
