Founder - President
I am blessed to have two passions Leadership and Marketing; I am passionate about both because they possess a certain power that can be utilized in a positive manner to make a difference. I have created a way to combine them along with my socialite image to advocate, raise awareness, and reach out to individuals, organizations, businesses, and local entrepreneurs to promote events, while spreading inspiration via social media. EMPOWERMENT is important to me, I am a SURVIVOR… and I absolutely love the feeling of improving the quality of life for individuals and our City’s communities.
Our new venture the Kali`Red’s Initiative – Take Your Life Back Foundation has been formed to tackle “Domestic Violence” throughout the region; with structured seminars, planned events, collaborative partnerships we will make our mark in this industry. I am also a grassroots-collaborative leader making a positive difference in society, while personally touching the lives of others. I am a survivor of many struggles, and I believe in standing up for what is RIGHT. Due to my own personal experiences with ”Domestic Violence”; I remembered how I had to deal with a few organizations for survival reasons; I saw several loopholes in their processes, along with lots of negative and dangerous glitches in the justice system. With the tremendous experience I have gained, I decided that I would create my own Foundation that would be ran with the hopes of assisting all the people that come through our doors, by working extremely hard to make sure that the services offered are effective, and that our Foundation would STAND OUT vividly through valuable outcomes of positive self- transformation.
I am the first official socialite of New Orleans, an upcoming social media phenomenon, an advocate against “Domestic Violence”, and I am a part of many efforts that are working towards stopping the violence in our City. I began to advocate stopping “Domestic Violence” and became more involved with helping the homeless through my own personal initiatives and collaborating with others. I was once a battered woman and I was homeless. It was a very devastating and life changing experience. I also lived in a battered woman’s shelter for two and a half months while trying to complete my college tenure. Some people still fail to realize the seriousness of domestic abuse and homelessness. I saw a huge need in society to help spread awareness about both issues, due to individuals being in danger of losing their lives through acts of domestic violence, as well as the lives of innocent children.
I am also the CEO of “The Kali’ Red Experience, LLC”, I launched this innovative marketing business to build a strong networking base in the City of New Orleans, while hosting and promoting events. Through my “Kali’ Red” socialite image, I have had the opportunity to work with several A-List celebrities, and many wonderful major organizations, that allowed me to experience behind the scenes activities on how they function by working as a faithful volunteer, and promoting their community events.
My motto is “LOVE, LOYALTY, and SUPPORT”…I am very passionate about those words; I uphold and live by them no matter what!
