I have carved out paths for myself as an athlete and a leader in the corporate world through unrelenting perseverance and a will to win. All the highs and lows in my life, all of my failures and past successes, have placed me where I am today.
My experiences have allowed me to distinguish myself authentically, personally, professionally and athletically, and I have reached heights in all three lanes that didn’t seem possible to a little girl born to Jamaican parents.
Raised by a single mother majority of my life sports became a haven. In high school I was a varsity volleyball, basketball, softball and track and field athlete. I worked really hard because I knew that my mother did not have the funds to send me to school so I would need to get a scholarship. My skill sets in the shot put provided me a full scholarship to Northeastern University in Boston where I also competed in the weight throw, hammer, discus and sometimes threw the javelin to gain points for the team. Putting my heart and mind in all I do lead me to achieve things many thought I could not.
As a US-Jamaican dual citizen, I had the privilege of representing my country Jamaica in Track & Field in the 2008 Olympics. I'm the owner of a global empowerment brand Moving in Faith, LLC, and I was one of the most accomplished mortgage bankers now business consultants at the No. 1 lending company in America.
I have been using my unique platform to faithfully motivate and advocate for others who are pushing to achieve their personal vision of success and find their own voice.
You will quickly find that during presentations and workshops that there is power in my voice that empowers. You will feel the warmth of my smile and take in my contagious, hearty laugh, along with my authentic personality that will connect with all in the room, allowing them to see themselves in me, leaving inspired, ready to execute, and embrace and own the greatness within themselves.
Companies and organizations such as Quicken Loans, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Northeastern University, Eastern Michigan University, NCAA, Mary Kay, The International Olympic Association, and others have all enjoyed working with me and I look forward to helping many more.
