I may have been six or seven when I wrote my first poem. I was eight or nine when I started writing plays. I vividly remember forcing my twin sister to act out the parts I created. I then proceeded to find any family member in the house to be our audience. It began there. My love for writing has always been the foreward for every book that is my life. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, I knew early on that I loved writing. I loved capturing an audience with a message and somewhere following my teens, I realized that I loved inspiring others. Thus, where I am today.
Over the last 15+ years I've written for myself, individuals, and businesses alike. I've had opportunities to speak to numerous of audiences on topics from confidence, business, empowerment, overcoming obstacles and more. I've written for several literary and communication platforms. Most notably, I published my novel, Enough Time, in 2012. In 2018, I wrote and co-edited the documentary, The View Within Mario Reed. Because of the leadership training and experience I have obtained over the years, in 2019 I created the leadership program, The Greater You Leadership Series.
I have been in the government, utility and transportation industry a combined 15+ years, specializing in procurement. I also find quite a bit of joy in serving my community through committees, commissions, and boards. It is a must that I give back.
I am a servant, mother, business woman, writer, speaker, and leadership coach. I am passionate about life and all that each of us have to offer and foster in others.
That's about it in a nutshell. Not a lot right? Somehow God keeps me grounded and I continue to push forward in knowing that I'm letting my light shine.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to let me know if you would like me to be a speaker or lead a workshop. I would absolutely love to do so!
Let's walk this journey together!
