Her career spanned from working in news, public relations, and media development.  She worked as the first woman DJ at WXOK AM first black DJ at WFMF FM radio, and later as the first black reporter at WAFB TV.

Her volunteer leadership on the YWCA Board of Directors where she participated in the national YWCA racial justice training program lead to her development of The Dialogue on Race Original Series program

This DOR program ultimately leads to the development of the Dialogue on Race Louisiana organization with Maxine Crump as President/CEO.  She has won numerous awards for her work to eliminate racism. She delivered a TEDxLSU talk in 2015, “Why not talk about race?”

She has received more than a dozen awards from various organizations honoring her for her work around race. 

In early 2016 she learned she was a descendant of enslaved people owned and sold to Louisiana in an 1838 sale by Georgetown University.  This is how she came to be born in Louisiana.
