Appointed Poet Laureate for Women Organized to Respond to Life Threatening Diseases (WORLD) an organization fighting for the cure of HIV/AIDS as well as being an Original member of the Oakland Slam Team.  A national toured poet, but can be found at a coffee house open mic or  community free writing workshop, still being a student to her muse. Her words are poignant and powerful.  Beginning from the ink pen, to the tongue spit to the ear lobe, her words will , lick, kick, hold you captive, hostage and set you free.
