Meet the Coach

Live, Laughter & Love!  


My greatest love is serving others. I learned the value of an education, the importance of hard work, and the significance of having that mustard seed FAITH at an early age. This kind of faith enables me to seize the moment, see the impossible and do the unbelievable. 


Born in Seattle, Washington, I’ve traveled the world. My  passion for business and politics led me to earn a degree in Public Administration from Bowie State University.  This degree prepared me to build a career in local government where I served thirty years, helping the Public Safety community by managing budgets upward of 35 million dollars.  Midway in my career, I felt the call not only to help others in ministry but also as an entrepreneur.


Shortly after my mother’s death, I felt a tremendous void so I focused on starting a business. As a Marketplace Ministry, my business had to reflect my belief of whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord (Colossians 3:22-24).  In 2004, I created a business designed to aid clients seeking to start nonprofit organizations. It didn’t stop there. I also continued teaching Financial Wellness.


In 2017, God blessed me with Community Partnership Foundation Inc, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization designed to improve quality of life for low-income people through partnerships among local nonprofit, faith-based organizations and small business. We implemented initiatives investing in education, community and technology.  Our love to create and build will strengthen startup nonprofits and provide service as fiscal sponsors for people who want to develop organizations of their own. 


Built with Integrity and a strong Commitment to Excellence, "My Business is My Ministry."
