I grew up with a single mother and sister in a cozy 2-bedroom apartment. As much as my mother was determined to provide my sister and I with a better life, she recognized it simply could not happen alone. She knew it was going to “take a village”. From that, I have a clear understanding that had I not been under the influence of the community that I was surrounded by, I would not be where I am today.
For that reason, I have dedicated my life to providing others with the same opportunities and lessons that I was fortunate enough to have been given. With over 15 years of experience in working with and teaching children and their families, I have been able to create an organization that provides ground-breaking methods in developing our children’s mental growth and physical health as well as sharing the lessons I have learned to create a better and brighter future for our children.
