I absolutely love life!  I have a zeal and love for people and development.  I am passionate about social justice, diversity and inclusion.  I want my life’s work to be about the advancement and betterment of people.  I love meeting new people, attending meetings to further my life’s mission of gaining knowledge and exploring possibilities.  I love my parents, brother, grandmother and husband, they are the light of my world.   I am a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc!  Most importantly I love God and his goodness, mercy and love.

Favorite Pastime:

My favorite pastime is watching television!  I cannot help myself, it’s the most enjoyable thing I can do after a long day’s work.   My favorite channels are HGTV, Vh1 and CNN.   I am most excited for the return of Power on Starz.  Power keeps me guessing, strategizing and excited; it’s like watching a game of chess.  You can say I am a super fan, because I love watching it at 12:01a when the new episode is released On Demand. 


Upcoming project(s):

Currently I work for INTREN, a utility contractor specializing in gas/electric distribution, storm response, commercial/industrial services. INTREN created my role in early 2017 to increase the culture of the organization, diversity and inclusion.  I am honored to be the first African-American Manager at INTREN and hope to bring a new and innovative perspective to the organization.  In my new role at INTREN I am developing new training programs that improve employee satisfaction, utility, growth and efficiency.    Other than creating trainings that meet the demands of our workforce, I work on developing our employees with current skills and preparing them for future jobs within the company.  I am most excited for a project I am working in the Baltimore and Philadelphia market to increase veterans and minorities in our workforce.
