I am a life-long resident of Flint, Michigan and I am most known for my unwavering love for my city and quest to ensure that it’s a thriving community in years to come.
I am currently the program coordinator for Well of Hope, a non-profit organization focused on breaking the cycle of poverty. Through my role with Well of Hope, I created the annual "Blessed to be a Blessing" Thanksgiving dinner for less fortunate families in the area. I am also the founder of the annual family fun day "Steps to Healing a Broken Generation", which offers various resources to families in efforts to break the cycle of poverty and decrease violence among youth. Most recently, I have worked to secure funding for Well of Hope to build three free food pantries in the City of Flint. Learn more about my work with Well of Hope: here!
My other civic engagement includes serving for the following: Flint Housing Commission, Local Officers Compensation Commission, Community Foundation of Greater Flint Neighborhood Small Grants Committee, Offender Success Program, Voices For Children Breakfast Committee and I am also a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
My favorite and most important job is being a mother, role-model and friend to beautiful nine-year old daughter.
I received a Bachelor of Social Work & Master of Public Administration from the University of Michigan-Flint.
I am currently employed as a Qualified Mental Health Professional working with the families of children diagnosed with severe emotional disturbances. Mental health is dear to my heart and it is my life goal to break the stigma around mental illness and seeking mental health services.
