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 abuse. 

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 and contract services to the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office, The Stop Rape Crisis Center, and the Department of Children and Family Services.  While serving as a social worker, I also served as an Assistant Professor and Instructor at several universities.  

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, which went on to become a best selling African-American novel.  Under Shero Productions, I have published several publications including Lipstick, Heels & Hustle: A Woman's Guide To Entrepreneurship.

October 2016

After 20 years, I closed my private practice and transitioned into business coaching. 

Realizing that I had served my community for over 20 years as a social worker and college professor, 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 successful small business owner, I  now help new entrepreneurs from around the world to take their great business ideas and make them a reality.
