Having been born and raised in South Florida, spending the majority of my childhood in Broward County, I am proud to continue my investment in South Florida by running for Florida House District 95.

As the child of Caribbean immigrants, my heart has always been nurtured toward servant leadership that has been the guiding light for all of my professional career choices.

Upon graduating from the Florida State University, where I studied Family and Child Development and earned a minor in Biology, I worked at the Department of Children and Families (DCF) as a Child Protective Investigator. It was at DCF that I began to see the impact of effective legislation (or lack thereof) on underresourced families.

It was at DCF that I began to see the impact of effective legislation (or lack thereof) on underresourced families.

Following my five years at DCF, I transitioned into social justice work, finding and building power while advocating for better and more just relationships between community and law enforcement. I then furthered my analysis of justice and equity by working for SEIU Florida, understanding the relationships that race, gender, and class play on opportunities available for people across the state of Florida.

After the 2016 presidential election, I built my legislative acumen while working as the Political Director at the Miami Workers Center, expanding on a framework that empowers low income women to be full participants in advocating for equity in their wages.

Leading several coalitions throughout the years, I have curated several spaces across the state of Florida that have brought together over 2,000 Black people to build a shared political agenda.

I am running to ensure that House District 95 has true representation for all that we are – elders on a fixed income, immigrants cultivating safety and stability, young people invested in bright futures, hard working families that deserve to thrive and save for a future, low-income people looking for affordable ways to take care of themselves and their families, business owners looking for community.

My husband and I have dedicated our lives to eradicating the conditions that disenfranchise our neighborhoods through direct action, policy changes, and community building. And I am dedicated to building power in the Florida Legislature through lifting every voice.

Upon graduating from the Florida State University, where I studied Family and Child Development and earned a minor in Biology, I worked at the Department of Children and Families (DCF) as a Child Protective Investigator. I eventually worked to become the youngest and only Black Child Protective Investigations Supervisor at that time and it was while employed at DCF that I began to see the impact of effective legislation (or lack thereof) on underresourced families.

Currently, as the founder of Folding Chair Consulting, I focus my work on strategic visioning for political campaigns and equipping Black women to run for office… and win.

Leading several coalitions throughout the years, I have curated several spaces across the state of Florida that have brought together over 2,000 Black women to build a shared agenda, namely, the Florida March for Black Women and “Here Comes the Boom”: An Assembly for Black Women and Girls. I have also co-created spaces that bring the community in contact with the political system, making its impact understandable.

As the daughter of a Baptist minister, I understand the power of faith through action in the political system. We are called to act on behalf of the most vulnerable and justice and equity at all levels.
