The Dr. Vibe Show

L.A. Wade graduated with a Hons. Bachelor Degree in Sociology and Religious Studies at the University of Toronto and completed a Master in Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. L.A. has been working as a Registrar and Sessional Lecturer at the Transitional Year Programme in the University of Toronto since 2009.

Her creative and intuitive counselling ,and teaching style has proven to be a hit with the students who interact with her. L.A.’s research and publications have focused on access and equity, postcolonial thinking, and Black Feminist thought. Every year she is invited to teach from her chapter in Ruptures: Anti colonial & Anti-Racist Feminist Theorizing, ‘Symbolic Proximity Rihanna Face to Face’, where she discusses the contradictory nature of the Black Female’s conformity for survival. Her approach is inspiring, innovative and empowering; this is how she approaches mostly anything and everything she does. She has experience in cross cultural learning environments and has worked with marginalized individuals across the spectrum of race, ability, sexual and gender preferences, age, socio economic status and indigenous groups.

Apart from her educational experience, L.A. comes from a rich history in the Canadian sport and music industry as a promoter, networker and event planner. She also has a strong passion for philanthropy and has worked with many large-scale events and high profile personalities like the NBA All Star Game, and Edwin Encarnacion formally of the Toronto Blue Jays. She is set to release a podcast called The Elephant Room, where she plans to discuss the unspoken and taboo topics within the Black community.
