How old are you?
How long have you been in PR/Marketing
Honestly, I have been in marketing since I was a debate geek in high school. My teacher saw I wasn’t up for always debating against people especially on things I was naturally passionate about. Seeing this, she gave a one week crash course in parliament debate and extemporaneous speaking. Within a week, I was signed up for my first speech tournament in these new sectors and excelled round after round unlike before. Based on my natural ability to tell stories through speaking and connect worldly events to anyone sitting in front of me without much training, I was accepted and sent to Stanford University’s national recognized debate camp and secured myself on the Varsity debate team the following you. Since then, I have fused my love of telling stories through words and visual presentations also known as Marketing. My first official marketing internship was landed Summer of 2003 with a non-profit agency in Dallas.
What is your focus on Nutrition and Hair?
I was dubbed the Fit Hair expert and sought out by numerous media outlets such as (USA Triathlon, Self, Elle UK and Black America) a few years ago when working with Sporty Afros. As such, my advice is practical and simple to those who are trying to become healthy. My focus is to break down barriers and hinderances within the health industry and help women live a healthy life. One of the easiest ways I can do so is through nutrition and hair.
Do you have any endorsements?
I have a variety of partnerships with companies but only connect with those I ahve been a customer with and adore for some times. A few brands that I have loved for years and am now an ambassador for are: Brooks Running, Jaybird Sports, RoadID and Garmin Fitness.
About The Hair
How long have you been natural?
- 10s: I went natural the end of my junior year of high school because we didn’t have the funds to see my stylist. This lasted a full year until senior prom.
- Early 20s: I went natural on and off during college. Again, for funding and lack of finding a decent stylist in Lubbock. I grew out my hair and wore what we now called protective styles. I also tampered a lot with color during this time. I learned more about my hair structure and it’s ability to break off from heat very easy.
- Late 20s – Early 30s: In 2010, I went natural and haven’t looked back. There weren’t any natural hair products aimed at women like there are now and it was harder as I was also training for my first triathlon.
- 30s: I embraced wash-and-go hairstyles for saving me time and money with products. Additionally, I was known for my signature Blonde streak. After this, I decided to loc my hair, which were installed twice once with coils and then redone into microlocs.
Why did you decide to embrace your natural hair?
