An entrepreneurial socialite who has thrived in the business and non-profit world, CC has lent her talent to the endeavors of a number of philanthropic organizations including the Junior League as Co-Chair for the House and Garden Tour, A Spring Affair Shopping Boutique and Chair of the Teen, Health & Nutrition Initiative. Accepting an invitation to serve as guest panelist with the Jack and Jill of America Foundation and being named Advocate of the Month by the President’s Challenge for her work with the Boys and Girls Club are just a few of the ways she has demonstrated her service to the community.

Her early days on staff on Capitol Hill allowed her to play dress up for red carpet events including a Presidential Inaugural Ball, the Michael Jackson Victory Tour & private reception, and lunches at the Georgetown Club, experiences that fueled her thrill for fashion, the social scene and desire to help others.
According to CC, “I’m so excited to join the Harlem World Magazine team. I look forward to the opportunity to reach out to the community when it comes to food, fitness and philanthropic endeavors. I anticipate having a lot of fun.”
She is an adviser to a number of entrepreneurs, a member of the Wellness Council in her local school district, and a community partner with the USDA’s Let’s Move Initiative.
