About Melanin Migration

Melanin Migration was created for people who want to take the leap abroad but don’t know where to start. It started with the book and workbook, Melanin Migration: The Black Family’s Guide to Moving Abroad and has expanded to consulting services, a lifestyle brand and more. With Melanin Migration you’ll learn everything from the basics of pre-planning a move abroad to what to do when you arrive to your new home.

I took my first plane ride at the age of 3. Growing up, my family and I traveled more frequently than most people I knew, this was thanks to my father’s job at a major airline. Flying for free was indeed a great perk. We went to so many places, Canada, Bahamas, Jamaica, Hawaii…you name it. However, it wasn’t until after I graduated college that I traveled solo for the first time. I moved to Jakarta, Indonesia for a year to teach ESL, and this move changed my life. After returning back to the United States, I never again saw “home” the same way. I now knew that there was more more for me elsewhere…more peace and more adventure.

Since living in Jakarta, I have lived in St. Croix, Puerto Rico, Bahrain, Bali, Thailand, Rwanda and now Tanzania.  I am delighted to have the opportunity to share the world with my children and I love to help others find ways to do the same!
