I was raised in Decatur, Georgia, in a loving and supportive family that gave me the support and tools that I needed to fuel my curiosity and creativity. I found that I love being a part of creative processes and I believe that it works best when it involves education, research, and tapping into your imagination. When I look back on my creative experience, I realize that it I was a creative at my core before I even knew it! It wasn't until I attended Albany State University, that I began to embrace it.
Even as a Health and Physical Education Major, I brought my creativity to class projects and leadership positions really contributed to my success as a college student. My creativity coupled with my love of learning, helped me successfully and swiftly complete Master's and PhD programs from Auburn University. Along the way, I have had the pleasure of advising and mentoring students and peers, worked on with numerous organizations and committees, and refining my creative working process.
With 20 years of experience as an educator and love for the creative, artistic, and research process, I earned a certificate in User Experience Research & Design from Georgia Institute of Technology. That experience reassured me that the pathway to success requires a plan, creative and imaginative thinking, as well as encouragement and accountability. As I continue to work, one thing I am certain of it that I will have an open (creative), curious (education/research), and strategic approach that will put me in position for success.
In addition to being a creative and educator, I am a proud wife and mom! I am an HBCU Grad, Alumni of The Unsinkable Albany State University and Alumni of Auburn University. I am a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and work to help make my community a better one!
