“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” ~Proverbs 31:30
My passion for reaching others has driven me to plant a seed in any way possible. I am simply sharing my thoughts with the world in hopes that it reaches a fellow traveler and touches the heart of those that feel alone.
God has allowed me to participate in leadership roles at a young age. I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Jounalism from Georgia Southern University where I interned at the campus and community newspaper, The George-Anne Daily. Prior to graduation I became a staff writer where in addition to writing for the newspaper I wrote for the student catalog, Our House, and university magazine, The Reflector.
I relocated to Virginia and interned with Max Media LLC. of the Hampton Roads, where I was employed after interning for two months. I was fortunate enough to be able to spread my wings there. I worked in promotions, edited on-air commercials, stop-sets, and traffic reports, recorded voice-overs for commercials, and wrote an online album review column on Star 1310′s website, which is one of five of Max Media’s Virginia radio stations. While working in radio I volunteered as the Public Relations & Social Media Specialist for my family-owned and operated Minor-League Basketball Team, the Tru Hope Trailblazers of the Hampton Roads. My love for sports and communications came together as I organized home-game agendas, was the announcer for several home games, kept fans, supporters and sponsors updated on Tru Hope’s community service whereabouts, upcoming games and volunteer opportunities. I met with potential sponsors and partners to gain funding because our team is a non-profit organization, I photographed our home and away games and events, conducted interviews and wrote for the teams website, and managed the teams social media pages to market and keep the public informed about Tru Hope.
After two wonderful years with Max Media I decided to join the Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast as the Community Realtions Manager, managing over 16,500 girls and 6,000 adult volunteers in southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina. I have been blessed to continue my growth and experiences as I continue to travel, meet new people and learn all across the United States. Besides PR, promotions, writing and radio, for years I have volunteer as a contributing writer to the Hampton Roads Gazeti, a non-profit, community-based newspaper; volunteered with Girl Power United Incorporated, of Chesapeake, VA; Virginia Kids Eat Free, and my writing can be found in Breathe Again Magazine, an online women’s magazine. I was a member of the Hampton Roads Black Media professionals and I currently write a men’s fashion column for online magazine, Feen Magazine.
I believe that God has blessed me to bless others and I am destined and determined to use every avenue and opportunity available, while creating even more ways to reach others in any way possible!
