I was born on March 11, 1973 in Barbados, West Indies. I attended Workman's Primary school and went on to Springer Memorial High School. During the early stages of my pregnancy I migrated to the USA in March of 1994 and in October gave birth to a beautiful girl. After my daughter's father stopped supporting her, I was forced to go on welfare.
I attained my GED and later a cosmetology license only to realize my heart was not into hair. After some intensive thinking, I enrolled in Business Administration at Drake Business School in 1999 and graduated valedictorian. I became a Financial Advisor, but my desire to work more directly with students pushed me to accept a position as an Admission Representative. I acquired my BA in Business Management from Metropolitan College of New York. Currently, I am pursuing my Master's degree in Business Leadership-General at Capella University.
On September 13, 2003, I received an award in the 2nd Annual Walk-A-thon from Beulah Church of the Nazarene. Following that award, I received a 2003 award for Higher Achiever and a 2004 award for Extraordinary Performance from Career Educational Corporation, Sanford Brown Institute in New York. I also received an award, Most Outstanding Woman for 2011 from Women's Motivational Services Team.
When I saw Barack Obama's eagerness to become President, it motivated and encouraged me to pursue my long-awaited dream. I created Women's Motivational Service to discuss women's issues and to help women fen their purpose in life. My business was established on November 5, 2008 with great success. I have also published several books-"Marriage Separation Divorce Regaining the Light", published in 2009, "Success-How Dare You Give Up!" published in 2011, "Success-Handbook for Teens and Young Adults", published in 2012, and co-author to "Cheers to Your Success! Women on the Rise", published in 2012.
I am a Motivational Speaker, and my strongest passion and desire is changing lives. I am a big activist against domestic violence. I speak every month at domestic violence shelters and have a yearly fundraiser for domestic violence moms. Life is a hell of a teacher and no matter what you are faced with you can never, ever give up.
