I've been a technical writer since 1999, and I've won awards for my technical writing projects as well as my freelance work and books. But some of my most fun, creative work was when I produced short stories complete with characters I cut out from magazines, and witty soap opera scenes I wrote in a Composition book in the 10th grade. I’ll always write, and I’m grateful to be able to share that talent with the world.

I'm the first to admit that I haven't "made it." I'm ever learning, growing, and changing. I'm a self-described goal-getter who is always stretching myself. In addition to the podcast, I also do voiceovers for commercial and narration projects.

After being a single mom for 12 years, I got remarried in 2016 shortly after launching my first online course for self-publishing. I became a certified professional life coach in 2015. In 2014 I released my first relationship book, Ending the Blame Game, which is told from the perspective of Black single fathers. But I became an author in 2012 with my self-help memoir for teens, What's Wrong With Me?

When I'm not speaking or writing, I like to run, line dance, bowl, watch a good movie or TV drama with my husband, and of course, spending time with my "Mini-Me".
