I am a woman of many titles. "Mama" is the one I cherish most. My life has been one of constant transformation that has been met with the trials, tribulations, twists, and turns that life so often places in our paths. However, it has also been one of many rewarding moments, memories, relationships, and experiences. I created this site with the hopes of telling my story and inspiring others. You can find information on this site about what I do as an educator and media consultant, my literacy campaign Read for No Reason, my blog In the Meantime, and much, much more. Enjoy!
