In this life, we either expect or accept what we want life to be. So as I assess my timeline, I've had to ask myself, “what are you expecting or accepting from life”? I’ve explored that question deeply from my core.

I haven't always walked in the many roles of a wife, mompreneur, author-artist, speaker, or life muse. It wasn't until I became serious about growth, living, and giving that I was willing to invest in myself and others. As I sat in an art class with my 5-year-old daughter, it was a Saturday morning when I would beat the odds of single parenting. The absence of a babysitter that day shifted the trajectory of both of our lives.  As her tiny hands picked up the pastels that created and colored an image of a flower I watched come alive, I began to exhale the colors of my future. I stopped accepting labels and started expecting the greatness that had bloomed evident that day! 

It is my life's work to break cycles that don't serve my community or me. The training and coaching sessions focus on barriers that no longer serve our communities well. In addition, I invest in partnerships that help me continue the work. 

How do  we
A.R.T.
Activate Right Thinking?

Our Vision is to promote leadership expansion, educate on growth principles for those who partner with our most vulnerable communities.

Our Mission is to eradicate poverty mindsets and limiting beliefs through coaching and training. 

We create safe places for healing and, by doing so, change is inevitable. As we partner with others who have a shared vision, we increase opportunities for people to make liberating choices.

We all have the power to reach beyond our limits, even when present discomfort and conditions exist. We master our success by telling our story, holding onto our childlike faith, and brushing on the colors of forgiveness, love, and hope. It’s our resourcefulness that takes us to the core of whom we were created to be and helps us (ART) Activate Right Thinking.

Why take our courses?

We believe in engaging communities creatively and organically because we believe people are unique and wealthy at their origins when they can identify their worth. So we see our communities, learn about our communities, and invest in the growth of our communities. We don't believe in programming people; we believe that when desires are heard, and needs are recognized, hearts begin to open to find their path. 

I am the author and illustrator of Naked: Stripping to the Core in 40 Days. Naked is a devotional and creative companion that will assist you in increasing self-awareness using reflective practices and Biblical principles. We provide safe spaces and brave spaces for individuals to journey together,
