Why do you think it’s important for your business or organization to support nonprofits and community organizations in Southeast Michigan and what kind of positive impact do you think your work could have?
I lead three nonprofits, all focused on behavioral health. I provide pro bono services to the first Black-owned television station in America, which is now a museum. I sit on the boards of our communities leading cultural institutions and civic organizations. I also served as the Communications Director for the City of Detroit and as a lobbyist for the Detroit Regional Chamber. I see nonprofits’ impact, block by block, and how they are filling a void left by the government. By creating partnerships and working together, nonprofits can solve problems and drive solutions much easier than any government can. I look forward to expanding my work, mentoring, and continuing to partner for impact.
