I am Dr. Nafeesah Allen–Author, Editor, and Strategist.
Along my 15+ year career in communications for the federal government, municipal governments, and magazine publications, I have built a reputation for thoughtful writing, effective strategy, and excellent research that delivers results.

As a migration scholar and multicultural communications expert, I strive to elevate diverse perspectives in the mainstream. As a regular contributor to acclaimed publications like Forbes, Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, House Beautiful, and Mind Body Green, I write about a wide array of topics: personal finance, travel, home, family, employment, DEIA, small business, and more.
In just two years, I scaled my freelance writing hobby to a 6-figure editorial content and strategy company, complete with bilingual children’s books, multiple successful blogs including Preggy Finance and Black History Bookshelf, and an exciting roster of superstar ghostwriting clients. All of these achievements are in addition to being a doting wife, mom of two, career diplomat, and global real estate investor.
