Professionally, I am an author. Like many authors, my work is inspired by my passion (helping women) and supported by the expertise I possess (for example, I earned my Doctorate in Pastoral Care and Counseling). However, unlike many other authors, my career path has been… let’s just say interesting. First, I was an Accountant for an oil company. Then, I became a Real Estate Broker and Mortgage Broker and have held that position for 25+ years. I earned a Masters of Divinity Degree and Later a Doctorate of Ministry from Columbia Seminary. Finally, during my seminary matriculation, I started a non-profit organization to help women and girls. The organization is called Youthful Survivors of America and I am very proud to say that my work (developing curricula and programs, writing grants in excess of $1,000,000, managing the non-profit and all that entails, etc.) has touched the lives of over 70,000 students in schools across five states. During my career, I have been honored to receive several community service awards, appear on various television and radio programs, and be called upon as a resource for the Juvenile Justice system, Family and Children’s Services, and a number of school districts in the South Eastern US.
