This is My Story

Born in Brooklyn, New York, I began my professional career with a passion for music performance, and arts education. I earned a Bachelors of Arts in Music Performance from New York University, a Masters of Arts in Music Performance and Arts Administration also from New York University, and completed a Masters of Science in Fundraising Management at Columbia University.

As a fundraising professional with over 10 years in the field, I am currently the Executive Director of the Brooklyn Steppers, Inc., a premier arts organization supporting young performing artists and scholars. Prior to work at the Brooklyn Steppers, I was the Associate Director of Development at Kingsborough Community College/CUNY and Development Officer at Teachers College, Columbia University. Currently, I sit on the Board of Directors of Opera Ebony, the longest surviving African-American opera companies in American History. In addition, have studied trumpet with some New York City’s most sought after performers and clinicians, including: Thomas Hoyt, Ronald Anderson, Laurie Frink and Wynton Marsalis, just to name a few, and I continue to freelance with trumpet gigs throughout New York City. I've performed in numerous Off Broadway and Off-Off Broadway Productions, and toured with the 17-time Drum Corps International World Champion Blue Devils in the United States and Japan.

In 2013, I was introduced to the network marketing profession. Not only was my excitement level through the roof, it was then that I truly got the bug. I realized that there was a better way and what I was currently pursuing was not going to give me the freedom and the opportunity to pursue my passions.

I help entrepreneurs brand themselves, get more leads and sales in their business and market effectively on social media. I am on a mission to inspire people all over the world to help them to take control of their life, follow their dreams, and live the life they were destined to live.

Join me on this incredible journey.
