Since I was a teenager, I’ve always had a heart to serve those in needs.
For over 25 years I have been volunteering my time and giving of my money to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. For the past 8 years I have served on the mentorship team for Pennylane, an organization that serves the foster youth community. I am especially passionate about positively influencing the lives of young girls who come from household that are impacted by domestic violence. Seeing my own mother experience domestic abuse at the hand of her boyfriend, I knew that was a road I never wanted to travel down. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to start a foundation that helps young women who need positive influences and valuable resources that will make a difference in their lives. This is an exciting time for me and I have been working tirelessly to put together quality workshops that will inspire these young ladies to know their worth and give them additional tools to become all that they could ever dream of.
Professionally I am a Success Coach with close to 12 years of experience. I am also a Motivational Speaker, and after being asked to be the keynote speaker at a woman’s conference when I was just 27 years old, I have been sharing my empowering messages to audiences across the country ever since. My passion in life is to Inspire, Celebrate and Empower women who dare to Dream Big Dreams! At the age of 20 I became an entrepreneur with a $100 investment and by the time I was in my mid 20’s, I had multiple successful businesses. I personally understand many of the challenges women face as they embark into entrepreneurship and many of the obstacles that come along with operating a successful business model. This is why I have committed a great deal of my time to helping other business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs reach ultimate success through my success coaching and networking affairs.
Success is nothing without someone to share it with as the great Billy Dee Williams once said. I feel so blessed that I have the privilege of sharing my life with my husband Michael for the past 23 years. He is my absolute best friend, business partner, and is such a great father.
He has been a continuous supporter of my vision for years and has volunteered countless hours helping me build a successful organization. We enjoy being parents to our daughter Stina and seeing her evolve into a woman has been a true joy. We are extremely proud of her accomplishments and we know that so many more wonderful things are in store for her as she gets ready to complete her bachelor’s degree in 2021!
She loves assisting with the Dream Girl Foundation and also works as a mentor for our “Young Dreamers Academy?”
