Author of Speak with Chic: One woman. Ten truths. and its companion God, I’ve Got Questions: 10 Bible Studies for Women Workbook. I am the mother of four fabulous humans, an inspirational conversationalist, author, and international educator. I have over eighteen years of experience as a teacher, coach, and advocate for underserved and diverse populations. Although I have worked within state, federal, and international arenas, it’s forty years of life experiences and lessons lived and learned as a daughter, mother, wife, sister and friend that have better prepared me for my life’s journey. My story mirrors so many untold stories of little girls who survived and thrived despite growing up in the projects of Georgia, childhood sexual abuse, a single-parent mom who battled drug addiction, and so much more. After marriage, motherhood, depression and divorce, I discovered my life’s purpose while driving down Dean’s Bridge Road in Augusta, GA sobbing and asking God all the questions for which I had no answers. He simply said to me, “none of it was originally designed for you, and none of it will destroy you.”
I realized at one of the lowest points in my life that my pain had purpose. I resolved to support individuals who have lost hope in God, life and themselves. My mission is to be the premiere supporter of kingdom visions by reviving dreams and empowering others to walk in their divine purpose. I share my personal story of resiliency and faith to help others overcome adversity by acknowledging, embracing and sharing their truths and testimonies, and I share my financial blessings to help people who are having a difficult time helping themselves.
At the center of my philosophy is the belief that authentic conversations, connections, and tangible assistance increase resiliency and help individuals recover more quickly from difficult situations. People make better life decisions when they are part of safe communities where they feel connected enough to share their stories without judgement and receive help from people who genuinely have a desire to see them prosper in their spirit, soul and body. Through Speak up Sis!, I am able to provide safe space and facilitate conversations through both group and one-on-one empowerment sessions. I am a passionate, dynamic, effective teacher and speaker with a desire to help transform the lives of women who think their 12-year old dreams are dead. I utilize a spiritual approach combined with an outside-the-box perspective to help you breakthrough challenges to reach your goals and live in purpose.
