Like many, I started out in corporate America. I had my eye on the C-Suite. Then the dreadful terrorist attacks of 9/11 happened. Despite having multiple degrees, experience, tons of ambition and goals to climb the corporate ladder all the way to the top, I found myself unemployed not once but four times in a row.

I was determined to take the fate of my career into my own hands.
During those layoffs, I found my passion. Writing. I also filled my employment gaps by consulting entrepreneurs and small business and developing marketing strategies. Writing also led to working with youth.

I’m a God’s girl. I asked God to help me find a way to do what I loved and get paid for it. I wanted to do work I was passionate about, which ultimately led me to my purpose.
…It took time but I finally got to the point where I woke every day, did what I loved, impacted lives, and got paid for it. Now I live my passion and purpose daily and I call it my Dream Journey.
Using my professional experience and what I learned, I want to help as many women as possible turn their passions into profits, fulfill their purpose and live their Dream Journey.
