Mountain Court Media

Rooted in History and Celebrating Our Differences

My great grandfather was a merchant in Sierra Leone, West Africa. He toiled selling goods in the provinces, only to bring his profits back to the capital city of Freetown. That’s where he built a three story house for his family on a street called Mountain Court. Generations, including my mother, have called it home. Trips to Sierra Leone as a kid shaped my identity. It’s where I learned about the value of community and developed a passion for experiencing different cultures. Those trips sparked a deep curiosity and love of adventure. Now years later, the lessons learned are the core values of my business. I’m bringing those on the periphery to the center by telling their stories with depth, context and authenticity. In Sierra Leonian culture, it’s understood that you are the sum total of your lineage. There’s a great expectation that each generation moves the needle further, not as a self serving mission but as a way to honor the sacrifices of those whose shoulders you stand on. So with each story, I honor my great grandfather’s entrepreneurial spirit, the resourcefulness of my mother, the work ethic of my father and the love that surrounds the tribe I’ve created, ultimately setting my work apart.

The Next Best Thing Podcast

I quit my job and chose a life that was more aligned with my values. For years I didn’t realize I had the agency to do either, especially at the same time. I found the books never really spoke about how to navigate the workplace while being a Black woman in a way that saw my identity as an asset. The messages were either act like a man or assimilate. I kept asking myself, what if I couldn’t do either? So I ditched the rules and created my own after decades of following them left me burned out and broken. This podcast is for those navigating spaces that were created without them in mind. People who are ambitious and have dreams, but the system in place presents unimaginable roadblocks. Folks who don’t want to choose between making a living and actually living life. I talk to amazing guests who know the obstacles firsthand, and generously share the blueprint on how to successfully get to the other side. A plan B or a pivot is not required.
