Hi,

Thanks for checking out my website! I’m a 3x Emmy Award winning journalist, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Mountain Court Media. I’m passionate about telling creative, engaging and memorable stories, especially those that center marginalized voices. I’m from a Maryland suburb of Washington, DC and my parents are from Sierra Leone, West Africa. My multicultural upbringing is the foundation of my work ethic and influences my love of storytelling, travel, and culture.

Speaking

As a journalist I’ve spent years hosting events and moderating discussions about the pressing topics that are most important to communities. Now, my personal story of betting on myself and navigating my own career and life transition is inspiring others. My approach is vulnerable, authentic and transparent. I have a particular affinity for organizations that serve journalists, women and communities of color.

The NeXt Best Thing

with Aundrea Cline-Thomas

Live the life you design, not the one you THINK you have to settle for. With so much uncertainty in the world, everyone should be preparing for their NEXT Best Thing. First, it’s a mindset that life is guaranteed to throw you curveballs, but preparation can help ease the blow. It’s the idea that you shouldn’t focus on running away from an experience, instead run towards something that is more joyful and better aligned. Most importantly, there’s never a need to pivot or implement a Plan B, because everything you’ve been through further qualifies you to continue pursuing your Plan A. On this podcast learn from experts about how to strategically navigate all of your career and life transitions. New episodes are released on Sundays.
