What was your big dream?
My big dream was always to help others achieve and stretch themselves beyond their own imagination. If I saw someone in need, I would automatically reach out to help and find solutions to their problems. This gave me a great deal of joy and pleasure.

How did you accomplish it?
When my 2nd child was born 6 years ago, I realized that God had given me another chance in motherhood. I understood that there were thousands of women around the country that also wanted to be with their kids and have successful careers; so I began researching and did this for 3 years. I researched all possible avenues that women could turn to in the hopes of building their dreams.

Where did you find inspiration to get started?
My inspiration was my son.

What motivated you to keep going?
My motivation and momentum was knowing that one day I would not have to worry about going to work for someone else on Mondays who would dictate if I could stay home or not when my kids were sick; when to spend vacation time; and, my worth.

What's your next Big Dream?
Today, I am a Personal Development Coach and Business Consultant whose dream is to empower women and individuals to reach their dreams and focus on their personal growth. I also work with small businesses and corporations to change Management's mind-set to create great leaders.

Now, what do you want to be when you grow up?

What book is on your night stand?

What's your Guilty Pleasure? (Grey's Anatomy, Peppermint Mocha Lattes)
Murder Mystery Programs such as Matlock, Murder She Wrote, Perry Mason, and the new Hallmark murder mystery shows... but, I Love American Idol and Dancing with the stars.

An all-time favorite movie that inspires me is Baby Boom with Diane Keaton. Shows the power of Women!
