Representation matters – at home, at work, in education, in institutions and beyond.
I love working with clients who have found and connected with me for various reasons, including race.

It also reminds me of my responsibility (and privilege) to be the mentor and guide that I needed growing up.
This is my contribution to coaching.
There is work to be done.
