I am a former Executive who left Corporate America to pursue my passion of empowering women to stop making excuses for not living the lives they want, challenge young girls to love and believe in themselves and encourage them to explore the field of technology as a career option. I am a Motivational Speaker, Author, Vocalist and CEO of Soul Support and Knowledge Brokers Technology Solutions. Soul Support is a company that motivates women to stop making excuses for not living the lives they want and to follow their dreams. Knowledge Brokers is a technology and administrative staffing firm that allows me to empower others through employment and learning opportunities.
At the age of nine, I was 5’6 and wore a size 10 shoe. I was often teased about my height, big feet, for being an unrealistic dreamer (wanted to be a speaker, vocalist, author, and mortician), and was constantly told that I was cute although my skin was so dark. It was not until college that I realized how those comments dictated many of my life decisions. I began to feel very inadequate and constantly tried to prove my self worth.
My book “Always Believe” came about when my daughter began having some of the same self-esteem issues I experienced years ago. Immediately, I knew that the only way for my daughter to accept herself would be from within. It was this experience as well as countless conversations with mothers who were going through similar situations with their daughters that lead to my new book. Always Believe is a book and workbook designed to empower girls to love themselves, believe in themselves and embrace their uniqueness.
