My passion project is working on my blog/IG for officeblackgirl.com, a platform me and my friends put together to share workplace stories from the black woman’s perspective. After hearing all of the after work vent sessions and happy hour chats, I realized we needed a space to take our mask off and relate to other Black women.  

Why did you pick Mad Fish? 

I picked Mad Fish because working for an organization that sees the value in people over profit is extremely important to me. I feel lucky to work with a team that is committed to having integrity and being transparent with each other and our clients. 

Favorite genre of music to work to/link to your favorite Spotify playlist to listen to at work? 

I don’t have a specific playlist, but I enjoy listening to Ari Lennox, Jill Scott, Snoh Aalegra, Beyonce, and Jhene Aiko to name a few! 

Fun fact about yourself.  

I love hot sauce! I look forward to trying different hot sauces even those that may not love me back – LOL 

If you have a pet, send us a picture of you with it! Or of it! ☺  

My doggy Mylo!

What do you add to the team outside of work? 

Good Vibes! I generally try to be positive and keep good feelings about things even when tensions may be high.
