My Story

My mother said that growing up, I loved turning anything into a microphone or a calculator. Today, I enjoy meeting and talking to people in transparent ways and being an advocate for anything related to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). I’m also a professor, a Presidential Awardee, entrepreneur, comedienne, and leader. The combination might seem complex and unusual, but most pioneers are!

Help Me, Help You

Although I’ve had a passion for higher education administration and research since I was a 19-year-old student at Spelman College, I only realized within the last couple of years that I have a strong entrepreneurial spirit too. My current services include speaking, consulting, coaching, and professional compatibility, an exclusive Prepared to Be a Pioneer® service that mirrors matchmaking but focuses on connecting professionals. Since I’m an “out of the box” person, I also am open to other types of interactions as well. Just let me know what you’re thinking, and we will make good things happen! After all, I’m here to serve you and your needs.

Pioneer Tips

People who know me know that I am always reflecting on something- my life, my relationships, or situations that did not work out the way they were supposed to work out. By allowing you access to my personal reflections, I hope that you will stretch your current boundaries and be comfortable personifying your unique characteristics. Consider me to be the “girl next door” or the person who says what you might have been thinking but were too afraid to say. I hope that through my musings, you will be encouraged to think deeply, get out of your comfort zone, and make a mark that will never be erased!
