If we only had 30 secs to get to know you. What would you want us to know?
I’m a publicist born and raised in Mobile, AL, and mother of a beautiful daughter. After going through life-changing experiences and accomplishing goals no one thought I could, it opened my eyes assisting me prove that failure is never an option. God is a God of second chances. 2010 I earned my B.S. in Business Marketing and 2014 my MBA from the University of Phoenix. I always wanted to pursue my career as a publicist. After reaching out to experienced people in the business, I never received support. Not receiving assistance, I decided just to JUMP. After securing my degree eight years ago, this year, I decided to open a communication firm, Lush Consulting Firm. I show great appreciation of what it takes to succeed as an up-and-coming PR professional in this industry while continuing on a path of progress and extraordinary vision of the future. Representing clients such as standup comedian, actress, and writer Ashima Franklin, I’m able to utilize developed media relationships and demonstrate my resourcefulness by carrying out innovative PR techniques. I continuously seek to take part and support cultural and educational events that occur in my community, because it helped mold me into the phenomenal woman I am today.

Favorite Pastime: My favorite pastime is networking and experiencing new things no matter what it is. Every day on Earth is a gift, and learning new things and connecting with new people is like finding a treasure. I look at life as a treasure hunt, excited about what’s next. No matter what level of success I achieve, I will always remain open and teachable.
Upcoming project(s): I am currently running the PR campaign for the 10th Annual Alabama Hip Hop Week which takes place every year in Mobile, AL in July. Alabama Hip Hop Week is a jam-packed weeklong host of events focusing on education, community outreach, and networking throughout the Mobile County by way of music and arts.
