    ...on the aspect of joy for others and for self

    This episode of Black Woman Working includes my conversation with Courtney Winfrey as we discussed Black Woman Working...on the aspects of joy for others and for self. Courtney is currently a community birth doula, a recent graduate of her Masters, a lifestyle blogger, new homeowner and a creative. Courtney is in the rebranding stages of The Courtney Winfrey Project, which is refocusing on holistic wellness. Beyond being a former successful student of mine during my professional tenure at the University of Illinois, Courtney has had experiences in corporate diversity work years before the recent obstacles, lives lost and racial injustices that have face our nation in the past year. Courtney shares her role in supporting individuals ready to expand their family in her role as a doula as well as her plans for the future. After this great conversation, Black Woman Working realized that there will need to be a part 2 so that we are able to followup on the exceptional and continued professional and personal growth of Courtney, so we will be checking in with her at the end of 2021 and give you, our listeners a part 2! But for now, please enjoy Black Woman Working …on the aspects of joy for others and for self with our special guest Ms. Courtney Winfrey.
