After a decade of running stores for Borders Books and Music, I turned my attention to nonprofit management. I worked as a Senior Human Resources Director until I opened my own consulting firm with my business partner, Jennie Brick.

I'm a proud member of the Golden Crown Literary Society. I regularly attend their annual conference and the Saints & Sinners Literary Conference.

I serve as the Immediate Past Chair of the Forum For Equality Louisiana Board. I am also honored to be the recipient of the 2012 Equality Award from HRC-Louisiana and the 2013 Louisiana Legends Award from Equality Louisiana.
