My vision of programming incorporates Center on Halsted’s mission and vision with more of a Senior (55+) LBGTQ focus. Through a diverse older community, I strive to produce the very best alternative programming intended to challenge senior creativity and thinking, cultivate friendships, and, to prevent isolation. With a degree in Psychology and Sociology (Black Women and Violence), from the University of New Orleans, I have spent 6 years in Senior Services varying from Post-Acute Care to Assisted Living and now Independent Living. I have held various positions in Senior Care and most recently with direct service to low income seniors in diverse populations that includes housing, community/residential programming, temporary social services, and education. I also tend to gravitate toward Margaritas and writing poetry.
