I'm a PhD student in the Department of Health Promotion & Policy at University of Massachusetts Amherst. I received my BS from the University of Delaware and my MA in Applied Theatre at New York University. I trained as a performing artist since age 5 starting at the New freedom Theater in Philadelphia, PA. Since then, I've developed my on artist-researcher-advocacy praxis incorporating health & wellness into my artistry.
I am from Southern New Jersey. I am the daughter of Sharron James and Lamont Dixon. My father, Lamont 'Napalm Da' Bomb' was an outstanding and prolific Philly-based writer, poet, spoken word artist and teacher. He is a HUGE part of why I am here today doing this work. I am certainly his legacy, and I will honor him always in both my artistry and research.
Who I am always evolves and shifts. Check back here for more updates!
