Founder and Lead Consultant at

Water’s Edge.

Heart-centered consultant supporting social change.

My work is rooted in an awareness that we live in the balance of systemic oppression and ever-emerging resilience, and a personal commitment to Liberation through building and sustaining relationships that open up possibilities for healing, growth, and change.


My professional background and expertise represent an alchemy of both lived and formal learning experiences, all of which have involved developing skills and strengths to survive mainstream systems as a Black biracial, queer, nonbinary, transracially adopted person. After 23 years working and living on Lenni/Lenape land in NYC, I now support change work on Wabanaki land in Lewiston, ME, where I live with my partner and two kiddos.

My work with Hilary has transformed and informed my leadership style tremendously. As a result of working with Hilary, within my school community I have been able to guide my team in reimagining a justice that is healing, relational and participatory. I am so grateful to Hilary for modeling and messaging the importance of there being joy in the work of justice, and that, as we pursue equity and justice, we have a responsibility to and for each other.
