She solidified her art and activist roots in her former roles as Arts Program Director with the Mississippi Arts Commission, and Executive Director of Alternate ROOTS, a nonprofit art and social change organization for artists-activists. For a decade her work with Alternate ROOTS, and the Mississippi Arts Commission afforded her the opportunity to work closely with social change artists, art producers and presenters; the nonprofit arts community, and a myriad of arts organizations throughout the southeast United States and the District of Columbia.
