Started Rutherford County Black Business Network January 2018. Her spirit inspired her to start a Black Business Directory because there was a disconnect when she Moved from Baltimore after living there for 10 years. What started as a community service project, and then was pushed further by a mentor to make it a directory. She Turned into a Facebook Group for business owners to Mix and Mingle. They wanted more opportunities to showcase their businesses and network with others. The First event was Dashiki’s and Daquiri’s end of 2018

Third Business is Brunch Money - grown and classy events that are Diverse, cultural, fun, social. She loves Brunch Lifestyle - good food, good music, community, and expendable income

As a publicist, she only focuses on getting media coverage for clients. It’s okay if clients outgrow her and go to a major platform. Her purpose is to help people get to that certain level of success.
