Communications Specialist, LGBTQ Advocate, and Actvist in the United States

Take my class

I grew up in the Virgin Islands and graduated summa cum laude from San Francisco State with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Human Sexual Studies. A brief career in freelance writing in the Virgin Islands was followed by a move to the Ozarks, where I opened and operated a fine dining restaurant for 18 years.

I became an investigative reporter after retiring from the restaurant business, but four slashed tires convinced me to quit that line of work and focus on publishing my novel, “Love, Sex, and Understanding the Universe.”

I write, consult, and speak about diversity and inclusivity. I'm available for teaching writing workshops and also take on work as a freelance editor. My second novel, "Finding Bonita" was released in 2021.

In 2016, I was a nominated Change Maker to the White House Summit on the United State of Women, and in conjunction attended the Justice Department’s symposium on violence against women. Also in 2016, I was selected to participate in the White House’s convening on Advancing Progress for Rural LGBT peoples.

After the 2016 election, I became communications director for Indivisible Eureka Springs. I have been arrested for planned Civil Disobedience actions in Washington D.C. on several actions, including protesting during the Senate vote on the GOP Tax Scam, and during the Kavanaugh hearing.

In 2018, I was elected Justice of the Peace (County Commissioner) in Carroll County, Arkansas, and was re-elected in 2020 and 2022. I'm currently running for a fourth term.
