If we only had 30 secs to get to know you. What would you want us to know?
I was born and raised in Chicago, IL but after a few hardships my mother decided to join the Army. From there I lived in upstate NY, Germany and Oklahoma. Wanting to travel the world more, I joined the Navy at 18 and served for 20 years. With the combination of the Army and the Navy, I have traveled all over the world. I love being a wife and a mother. I am very passionate about educating our urban communities on financial literacy. After the military, I became an Insurance Agent and that is when I learned the lack of basic understanding and made it my mission to educate as many as I can. I am a certified Life and Health Insurance Agent, a Credit Coach and a Financial Educator. I also have a passion to help motivate women by creating their vision and making it happen.

My other passion is cooking. Cooking actually relaxes me and of course I love to eat it afterwards. The best part is when I’m cooking with my husband and/or my kids. Christmas is my favorite holiday of all times, so that is the best cooking and baking experience when the whole family is in the kitchen laughing and making memories. I also love traveling and two of the best trips were on a cruise to the Bahamas and the other is going up to a cabin in Big Bear during the winter. I am a huge fan of movies which is something I can do all day. I sometimes will take at least one day out of the month and do nothing but watch movies and of course Christmas movies are my favorites. Reading has become a favorite as well. I also love going to conferences and seminars (when the price is right). Oh and another huge favorite is going to an amazing restaurant and being able to taste and experience an elegant meal with unlimited wine! YASSS!!!
I am launching a DIY credit ebook within the next month. I have a project coming soon to empower women to be more financially confident. Merchandise will be released soon as well.
I am looking for collaborations within different organizations and community to help empower, inspire and motivate.
