A passionate, creative, and articulate storyteller, I bring a cornucopia of academic, professional, and real world experience to every communication–written or oral—with particular expertise in the areas of father-child relationships, effective communication, gourmet cuisine, leadership, youth development, customer service, training, immigration, identity cultivation (through motive gifts, temperament, and love languages), and Kingdom living. From state champion orator in high school to Director of Training at Capitol Concierge to sole female speaker at the inaugural Father-Shift Conference I have engaged and inspired audiences for over three decades with my transparency and empathy. Since I have presented before corporate executives, federal policy makers, high school and college students, restaurant personnel, concierge managers and staffs, church congregations, radio listeners, fellow trainers, as well as, attorneys and clients, I am at home with virtually any target population. In terms of academic credentials, I have earned a B.A. in Print Journalism from Howard University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.
