I’m a Brooklyn born creator, entrepreneur, and writer. My passion is making wellness both more accessible and inclusive. As I explored wellness, I began to dig more deeply into the lack of support systems and inherent racism at play which perpetuate health challenges for marginalized groups. As a result, I’m leveraging my experience and expertise to cultivate an online community that empowers, educates, advocates and for the advancement of the historically oppressed.
Here you will find my wellness and mindful running products, created to meet you where you are on your journey and support you toward reaching your goals. I often call my runs ‘sanity miles’ because they allow me to combine movement with mindfulness. I'm excited to share that experience with you. On my own journey, I discovered the lack of accessible resources and struggled with a lack of support so I created a few tools to help you get more from your wellness and running experiences. The goal is to leverage my experience and expertise to cultivate an online community that empowers, educates, and advocates for YOU.
