Greetings Earthings! I am an Oakland, California native living and working in the city version of Disneyland... Better known as New York City!! I am married to the mightiest man of valor, Mr. Crayton (Bae, Babe and Cam). I am completing my second master at Columbia University, studying to become a psychotherapist! Vocationally I am a trained social epidemiologist.
My current research as a research scientist looks at major mood and depressive disorders. Specifically I am interested in communities in Harlem. I partner with Columbia University, communities and churches to study the effects, facilitators, barriers and stigma around accessing mental health care. My desire to pursue a public health degree came while studying Nutrition and Food Science as well as the humanities at the University of Ghana and throughout West Africa.
I am the CEO of Crayton Consulting LLC., Where under my private consulting firm I teach community based participatory research and help to design research studies as well as program planning. I also provide counseling in person and online (E-Counseling). My long-term vision is to provide therapy at my private practice, conduct research as well as own and operate a café with my husband.
I spend as much time as I can writing. Most of my wanderlust of life centers around spirituality, vintage lifestyles, relationships, traveling, community, love, marriage, food and fashion. Thank you for visiting my blog, you will find a feast of reflections about everything - but all of them are about how I live well and live well loved.
I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places. Live out loud, enjoy life, be liberated, live well and live well loved. Leave a comment, Please subscribe and follow me on social media!
