As a young girl, I knew that my mission in life was to help people be successful. My vision then was to become a social worker or lawyer. Little did I know that helping people was not limited to social services. As long as I was doing what I was purposed for in this world, God would do the rest. I've spent sixteen plus years helping people understand who they are by recognizing their strengths and gifts within them. I love to see people win. I love to empower them as God begins to show them who He created them to be. The goal always is and always will be to empower you to live with purpose on purpose.
I wake up every morning looking to empower individuals and their families to live according to the purpose that God has for them. I aim to strengthen the family unit and help to create legacies that help to strengthen our communities and the people within them.
" My hope, is that you come to the realization that you have a purpose and God wants to use you for such a time as this."
I was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but spent most of my life traveling with my military family. I have lived in the Acadiana area for over twenty years. I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2006, with my bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Studies. I completed my master’s degree in Human Services Counseling with Specialization in Marriage and Family in 2017. Upon obtaining my master’s degree, I became a certified Marriage Enrichment Facilitator using the Prepare and Enrich curriculum. I also received my SYMBIS certification in 2019. Through these certifications I am able to empower people through couple’s and individual coaching, premarital counseling, and more. I have over sixteen years of experience in the human services field. My experience comes from positions held in Therapeutic Foster Care, Case Management, and Behavioral/Mental Health.
My husband and I founded The Family Connection Inc. in April 2018. The Family Connection Inc. is a non-profit that offers life prep courses, counseling services, case management, independent living guidance, educational development, and career guidance for older foster care youth. Our passion is to reach families and assist them in reaching their full potential.
I was honored as one of Acadiana's top 20 under 40 young leaders in 2018. I am actively involved in my community and enjoy seeing relationships prosper. I am a member of W.O.W (Women of Wisdom) and The Arch (Acadiana Region Coalition on Homelessness). I am also a part of the planning committee for the UL Women's Leadership Conference, and serve as the Community Engagement Chair for True Friends Society.
I am the author of Anchored: Anchored in Christ, Anchored in Marriage which can be found on Amazon, Audible, iTunes, Ingram Spark, Books a Million, Barnes and Noble, and Attakapas Collective. My mission in life is to help people recognize their strengths and utilize them in every aspect of relationships.
