As a content creator, Riche’s clients have included brands such as Williams Sonoma, west elm, Facebook, The Home Depot, and Subaru.

Riche is a former appointee to the Maryland Governor’s Commission on Small Business and a former board chair of GirlTrek (the largest public health non-profit for African-American women and girls in the US). She is licensed to practice law in New York and Maryland, but only the fun stuff!
