Welcome to my little corner of the world!
I wrestled with what to write in this expansive “About M.E.” section because I wanted to be light but impressive, brief but informative, and simultaneously tell you all everything about M.E. Whew! So here it goes….
I am the daughter of a Jamaican immigrant and a Baltimore artist. I was born in Baltimore, Maryland and I am a proud graduate of the city’s public school system. I graduated from Morgan State University in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Finance and I graduated from Walden University in 2014 with a Masters in Public Administration. I love to learn, so much so that it is almost an obsession. I truly believe that each day on earth is meant to be filled with laughter, learning, and love.
I have a passion for helping others in any way possible. My desire to give back is a family trait, as both my mother and father served as nurses and nurses’ aides in their professional careers. Loving others and committing my life to service is all that I know.
At an early age, I was introduced to Christ and my life has never been the same. While I experienced many setbacks and trials, God has been faithful and merciful. I. Am. Not. Perfect. In fact, I am flawed by nature but I have been saved by grace. I am currently on a healing journey through Christ that has allowed me to revisit the girl that I was, while I journey towards the woman that God created me to be.
I am a member of the Speaker’s Bureau for RAINN and I would love to speak at your next event to share my testimony and help others heal. I am also a certified Mental Health First Aid Instructor so if you or someone you know needs guidance or assistance, please feel free to reach out to me, the 24-hr Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-TALK, or text “TALK” to 741741.
Lastly, I am also an AUTHOR!

Keep them for you or share them with others- the choice is yours!
The website contains my joys and my hurts- the good and bad of who I am. I share it all with you in the hopes that something I say or show may help you in your life. Please read and view with an open heart and allow God to speak to you, through my writings and photographs.
