Sometimes, numbers do lie! Statistics say children raised in domestically violent homes, around substance abuse, and in poverty are less likely to succeed and become products of their environment. However, this wasn’t the case for me! These are my stats, and I'm the rose from concrete who triumphed above them. Born on the Southside of Chicago to a 19-year-old drug addict and high
school dropout, my tumultuous childhood should have guaranteed future failure. But I persevered, proving “your past doesn’t have to dictate your future, and
manifestation is the product of action.” I not only desired to overcome adversity; I put in the work💪🏾. I'm a first-generation college graduate and HBCU alum with a resume lined with accomplishments and work histories with well-known corporate entities. In 2009, passion was ignited. I found my purpose while working for the
Chicago Public School system as a mentor and organizer. This discovery led to working with disadvantaged youth to coaching employees within elite corporate structures. I hold a Master’s Degree in Media Communication and have over 15 years of experience working for major conglomerates such as CNN, WarnerMedia (formerly Turner Broadcasting Inc),
iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel Communications) and Fox Chicago
News before I FIRED my corporate employers.
Simply put, I started from the bottom; now, I'm here…and DETERMINED to motivate & INSPIRE others along my journey. I use my voice as a platform to educate and empower through sharing my story and teaching personal and professional development strategies.
As I prepare to release my 3rd book Woosah: A Survival Guide for Women of
Color Working in Corporate @woosahthebook I'm ready for the new year and you better believe my vision/focus is 2020.
