My passion is helping youth and young adults realize success no matter what obstacles they face. I am most excited about how the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum has improved literacy levels, motivation, and post-secondary education aspirations in some of our most vulnerable students. This includes elementary life skills curriculum and middle school curriculum. As a youth keynote speaker, author, and success coach, I love using life’s challenges to provide youth and young adults useful strategies around the country.
I’m a college motivational speaker that gets results! My extensive leadership and involvement experience in high school and in college, as a teen mother, laid the foundation for helping me to realize her S.O. What! Success- success in spite of any challenges. After publishing my memoir, I left a 15-year corporate career with the Memphis Grizzlies, ServiceMaster, and FedEx to speak full-time using my experience and unique ability to connect with youth and young adults to help them excel in college, careers, and life. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, I also work as a empowerment speaker for women.
