I was born and raised in North St. Louis, MO. I am the oldest of 6 siblings: 4 girls and 1 boy. I attended elementary and middle schools referred to as Magnet Schools as a young girl. Surrounded by the affects of poverty and oppression, I am no stranger to living through trauma in all of its facets. At 12 years old, my father was murdered by his friend. At 15 years old I became a homeless teen. With my mother "Unable to be a mother to me because her mother wasn't a mother to her," I found myself strategically navigating life alone. Refusing to be a victim and a statistic, I designed my own journey; welcome to the path I traveled by to become the Communities Chief Operations Officer:  

The Community's Chief Operating Officer

After consulting more than 300 small businesses, I found that we must learn to separate entrepreneurs from small business owners. In doing so, we can better support entrepreneurs in the creation and innovation of new economic opportunities while investing in small business owners to grow within their existing capacity.  

In order to do this, I started completing operations audits for entrepreneurs that directly impacted how the executives running their companies did business. With the 14 touch system, we cover financial management, information technology, operations, customer relations, legal structure, compliance and quality assurance, human resources, governance, training and development, marketing, advertising, public relations, sales and facilities.

These services are provided to companies earning $0-$6M both nationally and internationally.

I was always told that it's imperative to document the process so someone else someday may use it to spearhead their progress. In doing so, I started my writing journey with a personal book geared towards motherless daughters by way of abandonment. My first book is important to me because I know first hand what it means to grieve the loss of a mother that is still alive. 

Soon to come I will publish a series of business books that reflect my work over seven years with entrepreneurs that lead hybrid model businesses. I can't want to share my concepts with the world.

Self-Made Entrepreneur

I have been gainfully employed since I was 15 years old. All I've done since I was 17 years old is transfer all of my learned skills and passion into businesses of my own. I am naturally a strategic visionary, therefore creating systems for new and existing businesses, programs and projects to succeed comes natural to me. Therefore, I built a series of companies rooted in who I am.

Facilitator | Director | Judge

During my 13 years of coaching and mentoring youth throughout St. Louis, I judged, facilitated and directed step shows, fundraisers, pageants, talent shows etc. In doing so, I built and executed similar events of my own and for other organizations, universities and schools alike. Today I am a guest judge for Greek Letter organizations, youth organizations and companies hosting events for the betterment of the community. 


I spent my 20's coaching and mentoring 1,700 St. Louis youth ages 8-18 by myself. From drivers licenses, to housing; you name it, I did it, if it meant the youth I served were successful in their lives. In 2016, I transitioned from directly serving youth to financially supporting youth and young adults by providing scholarships in the areas of: housing, performing arts and entrepreneurship. Now I speak nationally to youth on the process of overcoming the circumstances of being an unaccompanied youth.
