I Am Woman
Tell us about Yourself
I am a chocolate loving, Netflix binge-watching, traveling introvert. I love to laugh. I enjoy writing, reading and creating one of a kind events. I am also a volunteer crisis counselor. I created the country's first dues-based membership association for African American bloggers in a city. So, I'm pretty much a trailblazer. But who I am most importantly is true to myself at all times
When Life Gives You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
I've been in many negative situations. For me, exiting with the least amount of chaos is how I turn it into a positive. If I see no resolution that would benefit my soul then I exit stage left. Sometimes walking away is better than trying to fix something that will never go back to what it was.
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
No one really inspired me to follow my dream. I don't gravitate to people in that way. But Vickie L. Milazzo inspired me when she shared how she created the legal nurse industry. I knew then I could create things that hadn't existed yet either. And I have on several occasions.

Not pushing women to be anything other than who they are. Showing women that siting still and quiet will help to reveal who you are. Once you know who you are then you are free to empower yourself.

What's your ingredients to a long-lasting sisterhood?
Truth, honesty, authenticity, not afraid to speak up
Sisterhood will come with disagreements. If not, are you real sisters? But if you have pure intentions and want to see your sister-friends win, then you will not hold back from sharing in truth and love what needs to be said.
