Oh hey there!
Hey you! Thank you for checking out my blog!
A little about me:
I enrolled in college for Engineering at a younger than usual age. After spending 2 1/2 years in the Engineering program, I decided that I was more interested in social constructs, racial identity formation, inequality and … well, I graduated with a B.A. in Sociology :-). I spent time as an advocate, activist and organizer tackling various issues affecting women and minorities. I decided to further my education and obtained a Masters in Student Development and Personnel Services with a concentration in Social Justice Education (M.Ed.).
Most of my professional career has been in higher education but in my mid-30s I shifted my focus to health, beauty and fitness while still maintaining my grounding in Social Justice Education.
After several years I went back to my roots–a lot of the concepts I had learned in Engineering served me well and I began using computing and internet languages to create websites. Currently I work as a web developer primarily with the WordPress platform. I am very proud of the many projects I’ve taken on a consulting basis.
Currently I serve as head of Media and & Brand Management for a company in the sports nutrition and supplement industry as well as a digital strategist and marketing consultant for various entities and individuals in the fitness industry.
When possible and as often as I can, I do freelance writing assignments for bodybuilding.com and the likes. I love writing!!!
In between all of that, I founded my very own Beauty line called FitLux Beauty!
I absolutely love what I do. I wake up every day with energy and purpose to tackle every single challenge that awaits me when I get to my desk at work. I go to bed happy, fulfilled and accomplished.
My hope my blogs can identify with you in one way or another. I hope what I write makes sense…I hope it helps lift you up, get out of a funk, move away from a bad place, or simply make you laugh. I hope you learn and feel empowered!
Thank you for being here!
