SPEAKING

MY PHILOSOPHY

I believe that true-to-soul conversations are necessary to promote unity and equality, and address social, health, and economic issues affecting our families and communities.

Topics

Family and Relationships

Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Restorative Justice

Alternatives To Incarceration​

LIFE OR DEATH, FREEDOM OR PRISON: THE TRUTHS AND CONSEQUENCES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Life or Death, Freedom or Prison: Domestic Violence Truths and Consequences
As a former survivor-defendant, I understand the dilemma domestic violence victims face: tolerate the abuse and risk our lives or defend ourselves and risk our freedom. I share my experience with the criminal justice system, and insight into post-conviction collateral damage.

IT'S A CRIME TO SURVIVE:  THE CRIMINALIZATION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SURVIVORS

I examine the polices and practices that lead to survivors of domestic violence becoming defendants. I discuss awareness and prevention strategies, and identify the resources needed to help abused and formerly incarcerated women live a better quality of life.

ESTABLISHING AND MAINTAINING VIOLENCE-FREE RELATIONSHIPS

I invite women and men to join discussions about solving the crisis of the domestic, dating, teen, and gender-based violence, and sexual harassment. I  encourage open, no-judgment, dialogue to gain insight, create awareness, and promote violence-free interpersonal relationships.

CO-PARENTING IN THE AFTERMATH OF AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP

I share how I overcame the trauma of an abusive marriage and learned how to become a healthy person and co-parent.

SELF-CARE HABITS FOR PERSONAL AND INTERPERSONAL SUCCESS

Making self-care a priority saved my life, and helped to put me on the path to physical, mental, and emotional wellness.
