I’ve spent a majority of my career in Agribusiness. I stumbled upon this industry by accident, and it was the most fruitful accident in my life. I continued to excel in a number of STRATEGIC MARKETING ROLES, and believe that my number one asset is my ability to make sense of very complex problems through my unending curiosity and my unwavering dedication to get the job done.
I’ve recently entered a new phase of my career, and this time with full intentionality. A combination of my PASSION for justice; my LIVED EXPERIENCE as a Black woman in Agribusiness; and my DEDICATION to getting the job done; has cultivated within me an undeniable desire to prioritize racial equity in every aspect of what I do. And, I want to bring this focus and commitment into organizations. Our future depends on it!
