I was born in Mobile, Alabama. I am a Veteran of the United States Army, empowerment and motivational speaker for community development, and advocate who has worked with the homeless population to provide them with essential needs.

In 2015, my husband, Quentin, and I launched Everything Life Brings, LLC, which serves as the umbrella for several projects including the Alabama Black Expo and Miss Alabama Black Expo Pageant; Queen’s Gala; the apparel line, ELB Approved; the home goods line, ELB Essence; and our nonprofit organization, the Step Out And Receive Everything Life Brings Foundation.

I received my associates of science degree from Calhoun Community College, earned my certificate in medical administration from, Capps College, and I hold an Alabama real estate license. After over two decades of writing, Collecting Wooden Nickels is my first published work.

I reside in Huntsville, Alabama. When I am not spending quality time with my family and helping others, I enjoy photography, graphic design, and, of course, writing.
