My Story

I’ve loved every minute of my journey...

January 1996

I started a mental health private practice specializing in working with female survivors of sexual assault. 

A graduate of Tulane University School of Social Work, I started a private practice that provided counseling services to survivors of sexual assault for 20 years. In this capacity, I also provided consulting, contract services and professional trainings to the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office, The Stop Rape Crisis Center, the Department of Children and Family Services, and the National Association of Social Workers.  While serving as a social worker, I also served as an Assistant Professor and Instructor at Bard College, Indiana Wesleyan University and the Southern University A&M College System where I taught research and social entrepreneurship on both an undergraduate and graduate level.   

MARCH 2004

I opened the 3rd African American Book Store in Baton Rouge Rouge, Louisiana.

I co-founded The Roots Bookstore in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  The mission of the store was to provide an atmosphere where African Americans could come together to learn and grow as a community.  Featured authors included Dr. Ivory Toldson and Karlyn LeBlanc.  

APRIL 2007

I founded a publishing company and released the first of 8 publications.

After being told NO by several publishing companies, I started Shero Productions and self-published my first book, Sideline Ho, which went on to become a best selling African-American novel.  Under Shero Productions, I also published my first business book, Lipstick, Heels & Hustle: A Woman's Guide To Entrepreneurship.

October 2016

After 20 years, I closed my private practice and transitioned into working with entrepreneurs. 

Burned out, I realizing that I had served my community for over 20 years as a social worker and college professor, and that it was time to move in a different direction.  So I closed the doors to my practice and retired my social work shingle and transitioned into a field that allows me to utilize all of my skills, knowledge and expertise beyond walls, boundaries and politics.  As a serial entrepreneur and market researcher, I  now help struggling entrepreneurs from around the world to find clarity, direction and the confidence that is needed to monetize their expertise by leveraging the power of research.  For client testimonies, please visit my LinkedIn profile.
