Books, people, and practices that have supported, inspired, and educated me on this human journey. 


Often, the world of entrepreneurship can feel dominated by (mostly white) men making tech companies that may or may not benefit society... Fortunately, there are more and more diverse voices challenging traditional paradigms and building new models and examples for what it means to be a business. Here are some of my favorites, and I encourage you to dig for voices that reflect your own values and journey. 


Healing & Mental Health

Self-healing is a core part of who I am and how I spend my time on this planet. I’m a big believer in ending the stigma around mental health and speaking openly about my own journey healing my depression and eating disorder. Here are some teachers and therapies that have brought deep healing in my own life. 
  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) – IFS changed my life and I see an IFS therapist weekly. I definitely encourage you to check out founder Dick Schwartz’s books and podcast interviews where he demos the model

  • EMDR – a form of therapy to help you process traumatic memories and experiences

  • Psychedelics & MAPS – I believe in plant medicine and most importantly bringing it above board in our society through ethical, safe, and sustainable means

  • Tara Brach – Tara is a Buddhism and meditation teacher oustide of DC, highly recommend all her books and podcast

Abolition & Anti-Racism

This is by no means an exhauastive list but here are some core readings for those looking to understand how systemic racism affects us, individually and instutitionally, and how we got here. 

  • My Grandmother’s Hands by Resmaa Menakem – written by a therapist, this book is a trauma and somatic informed look at racism and its legacy living in our bodies 

  • How to Be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi – if you still haven’t read it, now is the time

  • Caste by Isabel Wilkerson – a comparative and historical look at the origins of caste system in the U.S., India, and Nazi Germany
