A Bit About me

When I was younger, I loved connecting people. I spent my time growing organizations and helping people build meaningful relationships. I didn't know it then, but what I was doing was what I was born for. I didn't know exactly what I was doing, but I knew I wanted to help people. That's why I obtained my degrees from Georgia Southern University (BS, Psychology), and Auburn University (MS, Rehabilitation Counseling). It wasn't until after I landed on Netflix's Love is Blind that I took the risk to give up what I thought I was supposed to be doing and stepped into the what I knew I should be doing–marketing.

 

Now, I'm the MarComms Community Manager for NextUp (previously known as Network of Executive Women) – a professional community committed to advancing women in the workplace, transforming the face of business. I'm also the Marketing Director for Render – a startup software engineering experience where tech meets culture, inclusion, and accessibility via a conference of 1000+ attendees, as well as Mueshi – a global art exchange that allows collectors to buy, sell, and fractionally purchase physical and digital artworks on the blockchain. Additionally, I serve as the Social Media Marketing Manager for Andre Dickens, Mayor of Atlanta.

 

I entered the marketing world to explore my passion for people, creating, and building better businesses. Now, I'm successfully that, but it didn't happen over night and it still isn't easy. That being said, I'm glad that I can be my authentic self in all my different spaces while continue to grow into marketing maven I aim to be.

 

When I'm not actively practicing my marketing skills, I'm all about community. I'm the Founder of Millennials of Atlanta, Inc., a non-profit that hosts free and low-cost social, service, educational, and fitness events for millennials of Atlanta. I'm also a volunteer with United Way, contributing to their Young Professionals Leaders program and graduate of their Volunteer Involvement Program, and Leader Victory World Church volunteer. I'm active in the Georgia Southern and Auburn University Alumni Associations and sit on the Women of Color Advisory Board. Additionally, I'm a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. The goal? Simply to create an impact.

Millennials of Atlanta
2018 - Present

Since beginning my career with NextUp, I've overseen various marketing campaigns for multi-million dollar projects, was appointed to the Women of Color Advisory Board, launched and hosted an Instagram Live series, and produced a podcast, r|Evolution, housing dynamic conversations on breaking through as a leader and building workplaces that work better for women, while energizing them to lead the charge for powerful change.

In the midst of the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, I established BH Branding, a budget-friendly branding agency focusing on helping newly established entrepreneurs and brick and mortar business owners who were pivoting to digital sales with an emphasis on minority and women-owned businesses. During the 2020 pandemic I, along with my team, launched more than 70 digital brands and since then, I have become a consultant for more well-known brands such as IBM, Lockheed Martin, and Aramark.

Since its founding, Millennials of Atlanta has established a network of more than 150 volunteers, 3000 members, and 17,000 subscribers. While Millennials of Atlanta specifically gives back to locally owned and operated businesses, MOA has partnered with brands such as Reebok, Ryan Cameron Foundation, Microsoft, Marriott, Truth Initiative, and more.
