In 2010, I was looking for a creative outlet for myself and decided to start blogging as a tool to educate others about living a plant based lifestyle. For that first year, I vowed to put out content every EVERY SINGLE DAY and as I did, my love for sharing and serving others continued to blossom!
Some years later, I decided I wanted to expand my business to include personal training and became a Certified Personal Trainer through The National Academy of Sports Medicine. I have always had a love for fitness as well as motivating others, so moving in this direction was a natural progression. I’m also an ACE Behavior Change Specialist and a Certified Level 1 Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition.
I’ve had the pleasure of writing weekly columns for the now defunct Thrifty and Green, GoodVeg and Frugivore online magazines. I was also a contributing writer for I Eat Grass and Media Shower. I’ve had featured pieces or profiles on Spicy Wifey, Our Legaci, JL Goes Vegan, No Animals Harmed, Kwanzaa Culinarians, Brown Vegan, I Eat Grass ,Vegan Mainstream and VoyageLA.
In addition to my private personal training sessions, I instructed group classes at the Department of Children and Family Services in Los Angeles as part of their health and wellness initiative.

OTHER PERSONAL TIDBITS
I live in Los Angeles, but I grew up in Northern VA and Silver Spring, MD aka the DMV.
I’m a PROUD HBCU graduate- Clark Atlanta University (I have a degree in Theatre Arts).
My Nicknames: Brutus (because of my huge appetite and love of food) Stah Boogie (for my love of old school hip-hop), Rerun (because I will watch TV shows and movies I love over and over again).
I love hugs, roller coasters and will never never pass up an opportunity to get on some swings or jump in a bouncy house no matter how old I get!
