A lifelong entrepreneur committed to community building, equity, inclusion, and generational wealth building. From non profits to for profits and everything in between I thrive on seeing people succeed. Connecting people with socially conscious opportunities to make a livable wage and provide for their families is my mission. Each month, the Umoja CoWorking & Incubator Family is happy to lovingly provide our community with culturally rich BIPOC accessible and relevant information, opportunities, resources, support, solutions... and all that.
