I identify as a Black, African American, cis-gender heterosexual female in my 60s with a partially visible disability. Mother, partner, grandmother, coach, coach educator, social change agent. More spiritual than religious. Grew up in a working-class home with parents who valued the higher education they were denied. Live in northern New Jersey, USA where I was born and raised. Passionate about life-long learning, indigenous wisdom and spiritual traditions, womanist activism, supporting cross-cultural connection, and contributing to social transformation.
