Photgrapher: Kelli Joy






Allow me to introduce myself. I am a proud Chicago native, Coffee Lover, Black Culture Contributor, Friend, Mentor and above all, Mama to Zion. 

Every now and then, I like to reinvent myself when I get too comfortable. If we've met, you've probably seen me operate in several capacities: Event & Media Producer, Educator, College Counselor, Writer, Content Creator, Dean of Students or Senior Recruitment Manager.   

To say I've lived many lives would not be a stretch. I like to say, I'm multi-faceted and creative enough to navigate any pathway.

Through my work I was blessed to be the 2018 recipient of the WNBA Chicago Sky Redefine Possible Leadership Award. Aside from this recognition, my biggest career moment was sharing the stage with Reverend Jesse Jackson on the WORD Network for the Women’s History Month live broadcast. 


On a personal note, I enjoy working doing the "inner work". I am committed to growing, healing and smiling through each day. God has been too good to dwell on the bad days.
