Entrepreneurship, and the arts has been a large part of Morgan’s life. At the age of 17, Morgan started her first plus-size clothing line, where she would sew custom pieces for women sizes 14 and up. From there, this created a full-fledged catalyst into creativity and business development.
Currently, Morgan is the founder + CEO of a Maryland based company called Distinctly Creative -- which focuses on helping black creative entrepreneurs succeed personally and professionally through the use of business coaching, an online community + learning platform for black creative entrepreneurs, a black creatives directory, the Black Creatives Matter apparel, and a creative coworking space coming Summer of 2019 in Mount Rainier, MD.
In the past 6+ years she has worked within the AdWords team at Google, providing marketing + graphic design services to a variety of institutions like the University of Maryland, George Mason University, and the National Trust of Historic Preservation, and has helped countless entrepreneurs in the DMV and abroad with their marketing, visual branding, and business development needs.
Morgan has had her work shown at a variety of events + venues throughout the DMV like the Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House, Lee's Flower Shop on U Street, and DC Fashion Week. She has also spoken at various events and organizations like George Washington University, Impact Hub, and FHI 360 about her passion for black creativity, entrepreneurship, and economic empowerment.
