Born and raised in Berkeley, California, Precious J. Stroud works in service of nonprofit organizations to construct messages that get to the heart of their story. As principal and lead consultant for PJS Consultants, a collective of professionals who specialize in positive narrative marketing for race- and gender-specific initiatives, Stroud combines her more than 18 years of communications experience, business acumen, and creative problem solving skill to increase the brand awareness of community-based and public service organizations, and inspire audiences to action.

For the past seven years Stroud has focused her work and practice in the field of Black Male Achievement.
