Author & Speaker
Whether through my workshops, media appearances, blog posts, or 20+ academic publications, I seek to foster wellbeing in marginalized groups, particularly women of color. My current projects include co-authoring two books on social justice education and facilitating annual professional wellness retreats for women of color faculty.
I'm Professor of Psychology at Kennesaw State University, jointly appointed in the Departments of Psychological Science and Interdisciplinary Studies. As a Black feminist scholar, I'm passionate about teaching courses that intersect psychology, Black studies, and gender studies, such as Black Women's Health, The Black Woman, and Black Feminisms.
I'm a licensed psychologist in Georgia and owner of WellAcademic, an educational resource for scholars interested in achieving sustained productivity alongside sustained health. Through WellAcademic, I coach a small number of faculty each semester and facilitate Focus Fridays, accountability work sessions that promote goal-achievement. I don't have a psychotherapy practice currently.
