She attended Thurgood Marshall Elementary School and then both G.W. Carver Intermediate and Oscar Smith Middle School where she would ultimately end up dropping out in only the seventh grade. She has come face to face with many hurdles and, generational curses! She is a survivor of molestation, and both mental abuse, and physical abuse! Over the years, She has learned to not only prevail above her devastating past but triumph over it.

Her future plans are to write and co-author many books and to continue to use the wisdom gained from her own struggles to coach, advocate, and mentor for other women, such as herself, through similar battles.
