With over 15 years of experience in the educational field, I have dedicated my career to empowering youth and creating positive change in my community. Growing up in Detroit, I am a proud graduate of Detroit Public Schools. The education I received there played a pivotal role in shaping my passion for helping young minds flourish. It inspired me to continue my educational journey right here in my hometown, where I obtained my bachelor's degree from Wayne State University and my master's degree from Marygrove College. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, further fueling my commitment to advocating for student success.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of serving as a teacher and Dean of Students, working closely with youth in Metro-Detroit. It has been incredibly fulfilling to witness their growth and support them in reaching their full potential. But my dedication to youth empowerment extends beyond the classroom. I have also been actively involved in the non-profit sector, serving as an Executive Director for Minds In Action. This experience has shown me the immense impact that community-driven efforts can have on creating opportunities for young people.
I am grateful for the opportunity to join the Youth Solutions team to make a lasting impact on the lives of Michigan’s youth and contribute to their journey of success. At Youth Solutions, I am determined to empower youth, unlock their fullest potential, and create a brighter future for our community.
Beyond my professional life, I have a creative side that I love to explore. Writing children's stories has become a passion of mine, as I believe in the power of storytelling to ignite young imaginations and foster a love for learning. I am also an active member of my sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Inc., where I contribute to various community service initiatives. However, the most treasured moments in my life are spent with my husband, Michael, and our daughter, Mia-Chloe.
