I am a mother, author, community activist and actress who believes every person should walk in their God-ordained purpose. I founded
A Dream Deferred Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps citizens returning home from incarceration reintegrate into their community and the workforce. I am currently working diligently on a program that will revolutionize prisoner re-entry and help to end mass incarceration. In 2017, I lost my father, mentor and friend. My father’s death left me devastated and grief stricken. Through the experience of that great loss, I was able to see dysfunction in a vivid way, directing me to rededicated my life to Jesus Christ. My faith in God has helped me overcome depression, trauma and use my pain to pursue purpose. I am a domestic violence and Cancer survivor who believes, “we are sent here, to heal one another.” After going through an intensive healing process, I have learned the power of vulnerability and transparency, which I share with my readers in my first book entitled Turning Our Hearts Back to God. I was born and raised in Philadelphia and am a first-generation college grad with a (BBA) from Temple University’s, Fox School of Business. I began my career in Information Technology very early on and was hired by Lockheed Martin Corporation. There, I was exposed to System Engineering Methodology and obtained an SCI Security Clearance to work on highly classified programs.
