DRM, Ph.D. is a scholar, author, philosopher, social justice and human rights advocate-activist, educator, philanthropist, community organizer, DEI practitioner, and administrator.
'We' oriented to my core, I believe that our goal in this life is wholeness and a true recognition that we are always ready and forever a multiplicity of one masquerading as different to help us understand our sameness––our connected becoming.
My research utilizes non-Western philosophies and spiritualties––Ubuntu and socially engaged Buddhism––to explore understandings of humanness, being, subjectivity, and the hope of education toward a deepening of our shared humanity.
Professionally, I serve as the Founder and Chief Reimaginelutionary at the REImaginelution, LLC. Most recently, I was the Executive Director in service to The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society (CMind), a global community of contemplative practitioners and scholars whose goal is the ongoing development of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice and the advancement of human flourishing within society and higher education, more specifically.
Prior to CMind, I was the Regional Director, Diversity and Inclusion at Ochsner Health System for the Bayou Region of Louisiana. I am the Founding Director of The Center for Equity, Justice, and the Human Spirit at Xavier University of Louisiana, former Assistant Professor in the Division of Education and Counseling, and served as Xavier's Assistant Vice President of Development.
