I’m Naja Hall, Founder of Blended & Black. I was born and raised in Memphis, TN but I’ve called New York City home since 2007. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Family & Consumer Sciences from The University of Tennessee. I am a Family Life Coach. I’m also an active member of the AAFCS and the American Bar Association as a Dispute Resolution Associate.
My Husband is a Father of 3. But when we began to experience the hardships of parental alienation, unsuccessful attempts at justice in family court and trying to deal with an uncooperative co-parent, I knew we needed support. Aside from a few friends, I rarely let on about the stress of a high-conflict co-parenting situation. We all want to project perfect lives, when in fact, many of ours is far from it.
In 2016, when I officially became a Bonus Mom, I was compelled to create a space for people like me. My journey to achieving peace was a long one and I am determined to make sure that others have a strong support system and a blueprint to make their transitions less tumultuous.
