WE FEEL OUR WORLD SQUEEZING US AND AS HUMAN BEINGS, ESPECIALLY WOMEN, WE ARE ON THE VERY EDGE OF A CLIFF. THAT'S WHERE THE BEAUTY BEGINS, WE ARE EITHER GOING TO FALL OFF OR FLY. OUR TINY STEPS, OUR UNIFYING ACTIONS WILL DECIDE WHAT'S NEXT.

“Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.”
This quote sums up my life and propels me to live with the intention to inspire myself first, to constantly evolve, to grow in every exchange, to always be the student and to take on new challenges that support my growth. That following my own heart unfolds into the “career” that inspires, motivates and harasses others to open up to the journey of their best life.
As early as I can remember, I was enraptured by the beauty of the story of someone else’s life, engrossed in the details of another soul unfolding. As I got older I realized I had a gift of seeing the missing pieces and wanted to be a part of helping put it all together for the success of the storyteller. Very early in life, I learned from my mother the importance of giving back and impacting other people’s lives. I didn’t want to merely exist in the world, I was determined to help to create and shape the world we live in.
When my mother moved to Haiti, life took over the next part of my development and suddenly I was living on my own in New York City at 17. Unable to work full time to pay my bills and go to school, I marched full speed ahead into real life. I embarked on the long and winding road that leads me to today. And as a result, my existence is like a giant snowball that has picked up every crumb of information and lived life experiences that informs the perspective I now appreciate at 46. I am always stepping up to bat and often in a new park.
