Toni traveled the world as a Cultural Ambassador performing & teaching. While on the Speech & Drama I.E. team in college, Toni fell in love with impromptu speaking and combined it with her love of rhyming and spoken word. She launched Freestyle Union, a project that earned her an Echoing Green Fellowship and later received a Soros Fellowship for Rhyme like a Girl, a gender specific version of Freestyle U. An intuitive facilitator, some call her the Flow Whisperer, as she has led Freestyle Workshops for MBA’s and corporate professionals, for non-profit leaders, artists & non-artists alike.
