Together with the executive director, they planned, implemented and evaluated the 2015 Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI) conference to improve community-based doula care and midwifery services for minority group women. As a graduate student at the Pasadena Public Health department, she worked with the Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health director to develop evaluation tools for the Black Infant Health Program to improve its effectiveness for future expectant black mothers. Additionally, she has been invited as a guest speaker at local Afro-Caribbean events on various topics such as fibroid management, and restoration of physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
