co-designing TRANSFORMATIVE possibilities for HEALTH, HEALING and creative abundance.

 

I’m a holistic design strategist, mental health advocate, and creative healer whose lifeswork centers the wellbeing and brilliance of Black womxn and folx who hold marginalized identities.
Wholeheartedly and with no apologies. 

As the Creator + Cultivator of Design for the Wellbeing of Black Women, I’ve dedicated my holistic practice to actualizing liberating and vibrant futures through design. I believe that creative, hands-on healing experiences can shape possibility and embolden communities to develop the tools and strategies we need for collective wellbeing. My process and practice are grounded in design justice, healing justice principles, emergent strategy, nature, womanism and the feminine economy.

creative muses

wisdom + ingenuity

This work never happens in isolation, and the voices of the people who are directly impacted by the design process and problem will remain at the forefront. I not only have collaborations with communities of healers, teachers, organizers, and justice leaders to thank, but I also have creative muses who continue to inspire my design and healing methodologies.

 
 

Their work, infused with wisdom and ingenuity, has become an inspirational force for what I cultivate in the world. To me, they are designers and strategists in their own right, reminding me that transformation is possible throughout the journey to collective liberation.
