As a parent of three children, I had to navigate the systems of special education, MFIP, career search, and recovery programs while being considered a single parent. I had family and friends who supported me as best as they could, yet they too were struggling with some of the same obstacles. I've had my struggles along the way still in every step, I obtained skills and experiences that helped shape and identify my gifts of advocacy for women in thought-provoking yet meaningful ways. I was honored to have mentors who came into my life, which assured me I was more than I was experiencing. I became a part of the J.P Shannon Leadership Program, where I learned to overcome those old labels from my past that uneasy emotional baggage. This space taught me even challenged me to recognize and accept that I was in the room because God called me to be in the room. Every door I've walked through has taught me that leaders show up in many capacities. Every leader can, if willing bring something to the table that can impact the nation for the greater good. I've had to sit in spaces and grapple with life's nuances the disparities of it, yet be a voice for those who, like myself, had been labeled even written off, yet what was in me was greater than the LABELS placed upon me. I AM Real Life Real Talk!   I AM a living testament to KEEP dreaming!

My Journey

I have worked for 15+ years as an advocate in various capacities, including youth, family (parents), and single adults. This is where I discovered that I genuinely enjoy speaking life into others. I want to provoke the idea that greater possibilities exist than what you’re currently experiencing - to help you think outside the box and expand your consciousness.

At various points of my journey, I have been full of raw emotions, yet like a precious gemstone that needed polishing, God guided me bringing women into my life who weren't afraid to shine a light on the difficult truths I needed to see and hear yet, still they were able to help me see my beauty.
At this time, my spiritual journey of self-love and self-discovery began. Up to this point, I was dealing with my past trauma that included rape and physical, mental, and emotional abuse. However, once I hit my late 20s-mid 30's, I decided to learn and pursue things that sparked my interest, and not just for the sake of a degree.
This refinement and continued learning shaped me into the woman and healer I am today. It also led me to create Real Life Real Talk, LLC to help other women break free! Whether society placed you in a box or you yourself placed you there, let's break free!  Receive your peace and freedom become engaged with your life while overcoming every obstacle in your path.
