disruptive

storyteller.

“Healing and deliverance start with transparency.” Specifically, over the past few years, I have learned some hard lessons and overcame many trials. I always find myself sharing stories about successes and failures in business, broken heartedness, being the only black woman in the room and even growing in my gifts and talents.

 

I believe in the power of a shared testimony from a healed place. I look to continue touching the world by sharing messages of healing, deliverance, and transformation in non-conventional, disruptive ways. I mean, where's the fun in playing it safe?

I'm more than a statistic.

Throughout my academic career, I have had so many opportunities in the public and private sector as an extern or summer associate.

 

And about 95% of those opportunities came about because I classify as a "diverse student". Don't get me wrong. I am completely honored for every door. But I confess there have been moments when the thought came across my mind: did I get here because I'm qualified or did I get this seat because I'm black?

On June 29, 2019, I had the chance to talk to ABA leaders, hiring partners, diversity officers, CEOs and decision-makers about the human behind the statistic. I unveiled what goes through the mind of the black girl they parade on their websites. I talked about tokenization- what it is and how to stop it.

dispute resolution

& diversity

In October 2018, I completed a Cook County Court approved training program at the Center for Conflict Resolution.

 

I passed the performance-based simulation test and was certified to mediate disputes in Cook County.

 

It didn't take long for me to realize that being a woman of color in the mediator seat is a rare sight for many parties and attorneys. Issues of diversity are not foreign to me at all, especially in the legal industry. And I decided to join the chorus of diverse voices in the Alternative Dispute Resolution field.

Technology and its effect on how we teach.

On Indisputably

I joined the convo.

I wouldn't be me if I didn't stir the pot.

 

I attended Pepperdine School of Law’s conference titled "Appreciating Our Legacy and Engaging the Future: An International Conference for Dispute Resolution Teachers, Scholars, and Leaders".  As the only law student present, and one of the four African Americans (that I could count), again I heard the skies open up to tell me that this was the field to plow in. There's work to do here. 

 

So, I published articles on Indisputably, a leading law professor and ADR professionals blog. Now, other authors are frequently quoting my observations. I wrote a conversation starter in the Center on Negotiation and Mediation's annual newsletter titled "Yes, I'm Black. And I'm Here to Mediate."

 

And there's more coming down the pipe.

The future is calling. Don't hang it up yet.
