I am so humbled and excited to share a 5-part series with Cynthia Bemis Abrams and “Advanced TV Herstory”. Because Cynthia says it so much better than I can: “Sometimes we lose sight of the adage “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Since lockdown I’ve connected with people and organizations that… Read More 5-Part Podcast Series with “Advanced TV Herstory”

There is no shortage of opportunities. I know I struggle with my own competitive spirit, and I’m actively working on tempering that as I get older. We succeed by lifting each other up & then tossing the ladder back down, and there’s room for all of us in the sun on the other side of… Read More @leahvbee: What advice do you have for other women in the industry?

Just a few months later, I was suddenly on the other end of production on my… Read More @leahvbee: What is a successful moment in your career so far?
Oof! Probably the polarization of viewpoints based on online content. While I wish this year brought the world together against the common enemy of COVID-19… I’m sure we all know that’s not the case. I hope I get to participate in a stronger, less divided United States at some point in my lifetime. I’m optimistic.… Read More @leahvbee: What is your biggest concern with the future?
A few years ago, I found out I have the BRCA-1 mutation, which takes my likelihood of getting breast cancer in my lifetime up to something like 50-85%. But knowledge is power, and I have the ability to minimize this risk through careful monitoring and prophylactic surgeries. But I bring this up because this knowledge… Read More @leahvbee: What’s a defining moment in your life?
When I was little, I desperately wanted to believe that magic was real. I was always ready for secret doors and letter-carrying owls — but nothing ever came. But that degree of magic exists on screen, and I’ve been mesmerized since childhood by entertainment, storytelling, and the potential a person has to exist in an… Read More @leahvbee: Why did you decide to get into this industry?

Jewelry ranging from rings and neckpieces from @theherdsa. I love looking elegant and amplifying my uniqueness and I also ensure that I support other black female entrepreneurs.
Only listen to your voice, even when the odds are stacked against you and even when the ones you love do not understand your dreams. Eventually you will make it through anything and your work will speak for you. Trust yourself.
