I want to continue to help children reach their full potential. I would not be the woman, the wife, the mother, and the professional I am today without the love, support, and guidance of strong beautiful women. They have shared their talents and gifts with me and I have watched them bless others with their talents as well. Above and beyond the ordinary my family has supported my progress and encouraged my volunteer work. My husband Carl has been an example of what a strong, supportive, and dedicated husband can be to his wife and children. I am most proud of my strong, supportive, creative, and handsome children Jahzeel and Jahleel who work alongside me in all my volunteering endeavors.
