MEET IVY AWINO, DALLAS-BASED DJ, MAVS X WINGS TURNTABLE GODDESS.
By now, you're familiar with our Chick Chat series - right? For us, it's so important to highlight the women who are making moves in their respective fields because #Chickspiration transcends all. After making our way back to Texas for a heart-to-heart with our favorite Houston gal, Courtney Brand of TheBWerd.com, we head to our second home for a turn on the 1's and 2's with DJ Poizon Ivy.
Ivy Awino aka Poizon Ivy The DJ, is a 26 year old music-loving soul. Originally from Nairobi, Kenya, this Dallas transplant originally trained in classical music (she's classically trained in cello and piano) before trying her hand at spinning some of your favorite hits. Six years after starting on her turn table journey, Ivy has began building her brand on her own terms. With residences as the official DJ for Dallas' two professional basketball teams, this busy concoction took a bit of time out of her schedule to fill us in on the significance behind her name, why she brings something different to the table and her number 1 #Chickspiration: her daughter.
