About Me

I am a licensed master social worker. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a Master of Social Work degree in Social Welfare from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I also earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Social Work Policy Planning and Administration from Clark Atlanta University.


I have published four books surrounding the topics of grief & loss, and youth development for adolescent girls. The titles are listed here:  "Real Girls: Shifting Perceptions on Identity, Relationships and the Media" (2010), "Real Girls: Reflections" (2011), "Grief, Why Me? Why Not Me?: A Journey of Self-Discovery "(2015), and Rules of Engagement: Grief & Loss Do People Really Care?" (2022).


I have been a featured presenter at several national conferences, including the National Youth Advocacy and Resilience Conference, School Social Work Association of America, North American Association of Christians in Social Work and the National Association of Social Workers Conference.


I have over 21 years of  professional social work practice experience with an area of focus in school social work and higher education. I have also worked with the Department of Corrections to support successful community re-entry programming. I utilize both a strength-based and trauma-informed approach for all services provided.  I strive to meet my clients "where they are".


I enjoy serving in ministry with my husband and spending time with my family, soaking up the "small" things in life!
