"The struggle has always been inner, and is played out in outer terrains."
- Gloria E. Anzaldúa
As a scholar-practitioner, I work at the crossroads of social justice and healing, research and practice. For the past 10 years, I've partnered with seekers, universities, non-profits, and grassroots orgs as they seek to sustain themselves + their work. You'll find me co-supporting work that's Black and people of color-led and culturally-grounded. At the moment, I'm connecting my passions for critical food justice and holistic health as a Culture of Health Leader (2017-2020) and as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Medical College of Wisconsin. This is ancestor work! As a Black woman and Blaxicana, my "roots" inspire me. Welcome to my virtual home/casita. I invite you to linger. Visit the blog. Sign up for updates. Dig deep with me. Witness. Just connect. ~ Dr. Naya
