She has read in the San Francisco literary festival, Litquake, and the Hazel Reading Series. Her works can be found on ElixHer, the online black queer magazine, Mission @ 10th, CIIS’s interdisciplinary literary magazine, The Kemetic Kindred newsletter, featuring writings from her Spirit Journal and Salty, a chapbook of poetic prose.
