Boys and Girls Club of Chelsea Community Hope Center

Boys and Girls Clubs enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys and Girls Club of Chelsea was formed in early 1994 through a cooperative effort between concerned community leaders, the Housing Authority of the Delaware Tribe of Indians, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. This club was the first Native club in Oklahoma. Today the Club is also funded by the Cherokee Nation and is located on the Cherokee Nation reservation in Chelsea, Oklahoma. 

Seraphic Fire

I support Seraphic Fire operations and artists by arranging travel for the ensemble's concerts as well as ideating creative solutions to operational challenges. 

Miami Fellows Class XI

The Miami Fellows 15-month leadership program experience uses our community as a learning laboratory, inspiring Fellows to engage and give back. We identify individuals 5 to 15 years into their professional career who have made an impact on our community, are inspired by Greater Miami’s potential and have the dedication to do more. Fellows develop a deeper understanding of effective leadership while learning about civic issues and ways to solve them in Greater Miami.

Hued Songs

Hued Songs is a performance series that celebrates & explores black culture through black music, black artists, and black history. Hued Songs continues to grow its reach and capacity, with interdisciplinary performances throughout all of South Florida. Through our work, we seek to amplify black narratives through music and to be a conduit for accessible arts across a multi-cultural platform.  

Diaspora Vibes Cultural Arts Incubator (DVCAI)

Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator commitment to artists of Caribbean and diverse cultures ensures they receive validation, visibility and professional opportunities. Our artists break boundaries of traditional forms and work outside of institutionalized systems, they often must create new systems and infrastructures to sustain their practice. We promote, nurture and exhibit the diverse talents of emerging artists from the Latin and Caribbean Diasporas through an artist-in-residence program, international exchanges, community arts events and a dynamic exhibition program collaborating with art spaces and inhabiting the virtual landscape.

Cherokee Cultural Studies: Cherokee Heritage and Self-Determination

The Cherokee and Indigenous Studies department offers students the opportunity to develop a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary understanding and respect for the cultures, history, and experiences of Cherokee and Indigenous peoples.

The Majestic Vision

This company produces the most beautiful weddings and special events. The owner and chief planner is a dear friend of mine that knows her stuff. She even executed all the details of my wedding! I've only assisted with one event, but I'm listing this as a project as I plan to say yes each time she needs me!
