Tell us a little about yourself and what you do.
I earned my Master’s degree in Transformative Leadership from Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida. Undergrad in Business Management from University of Phoenix and Associates of Applied Science in Human Resource Management from the community College of the Air Force, and I am currently in the United States Air Force Reserve. I’ve served our country proudly for the past 9 years and have been stationed at Joint Base Charleston, and I am now stationed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Ga. I’m a business woman, leadership coach, teacher, author of RE-PO Yourself, and motivational speaker. I’m committed to helping young women across the world to achieve success through empowering, uplifting, and informing them of the possibilities that lie within them to live a purposeful life. My passion and dedication inspired me to host my first successful annual YES! Women on the Rise empowerment conference in Atlanta, GA in September 2014.
I started this journey back in 2014, and after several failed business attempts, I finally discovered my purpose. When I said YES! to my purpose, I didn’t have a dime to my name. I knew nothing about event production, marketing, budgeting, or PR. What I did know was if God gave it to me He would see me through. There have been many ups and downs on this journey, but the ups outweigh the bad. Every day is a new day for me to get it right.
On my darkest days, the countless rejections, the endless no’s, overcoming adversity, when people counted me out, when you don’t get the support from family and friends- my faith has carried me the farthest. I also enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my daughter.
How would you describe your swagher?
