Motivational Speaker | Social Worker Expert | Staff Development Trainer


To see individuals apply learned principles that will lead them to a life of tranquility, peace and harmony in balance. (Mentally, Physically and Emotionally) I want to see hopelessness, depression and despair loose it's control in the lives of individuals. Understand that creative juices cannot flow until you have an environment that is tranquil.
I went from being raised in an environment that was destined for failure and now a wife, mother, author, educator, speaking and an exceptional woman seeking to help others through my experience and education. I turned my adversity into my strength.
