Amadee is a facilitator, trainer and coach who supports organizations and their leaders of color to move through conflict, center racial equity and justice, and fully express their power. Amadee knows that having good structure and process, being in right relationship with one another, and acting from a place of embodied power are keys to transformation in organizations.
Amadee guides movement-based social justice organizations to help align their strategies with their values and learn to use tools of collaboration internally instead of the tools they might use against their foes. She especially enjoys coaching Black, Indigenous, and leaders of color to connect to their gifts and grow self-confidence so they can embody their full power.
Amadee’s life experience as a Black woman and her time organizing and strategizing in social movement spaces (pro-peace/anti-war, reproductive rights, criminal justice reform, AIDS/health care) inform her work with organizations and leaders. She has a B.A. in Africana Studies from the University of Pennsylvania and a Graduate Certificate from Temple University in Diversity Leadership based in the Transformational Social Therapy method. She is a trained mediator, a fundraising trainer certified by the Grassroots Institute of Fundraising, and is a Certified Professional Coach.
Amadee is passionate about wealth redistribution as Board President of Leeway Foundation, which funds all kinds of women and trans/non-binary artists whose work is in service to community and social change. In her spare time, Amadee promotes ideas and tells stories that revitalize a sense of what’s possible. She is a Usui Reiki Master and energy healer.
