I am a practitioner of ancestral and earth-honoring wisdom who is committed to personal wellness in service to greater cultural healing. My people are from West Africa by way of Alabama, Ohio, and Indiana and also from the Irish and British Isles. I grew up primarily in Atlanta in a loving Muslim home run by powerful women.
The double initiations of motherhood and navigating an interracial marriage cracked me open to sacred grieving and spiritual realities and to the importance of ancestral and cultural healing. Professionally, I've also worked for a decade with the EPA as a contractor in environmental science including community outreach and impact studies in service to clean air and the regulation of oil refineries.
My spiritual path has led me to become a student of Ancestral lineage healing with Dr. Daniel Foor and a student of West African Òrìṣà tradition in the lineage of Olúwo Fálolú Adésànyà Awoyadé of Òdè Rẹ́mọ. I have been very blessed to spend time in ceremonial space with Brazilian earth-honoring traditions. I have also completed soul healing training & RYT 200hr Hatha yoga teacher training.
As an ancestral healing practitioner, I hold this work with great reverence and respect for the ways that it nourishes me and others. I am dedicated to holding an inclusive space which celebrates all forms of ancestral diversity. As a woman of color, I am passionate about working with women of color and LGBTQIA2+ people, and find great fulfillment in serving historically marginalized populations in my practice.
I now live with my husband, two amazing daughters, and two affectionate dogs in traditional Occaneechi territory now known as Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
In Gratitude & Kindness,
