I tell stories, not to be confused with lies but entertaining nonetheless. I am a writer, editor, book lover and storyteller who pens personal essays and other creative nonfiction pieces and a little bit of fiction, too.

I'm fluent in written communications. What I love most about writing is that I get to control some narrative and the words I choose can have some sort of positive impact on the person who receives them.

Northern Virginia Community College

Trainer Instructor I / Writing Tutor

I tutored freshman English, English as second language (ESL) and developmental English students in reading and writing within the classroom, campus writing center and online during the fall 2012 semester. I also had the amazing opportunity to prepare my own lesson plans and present a lecture. But at times I was so tempted to do the required readings with them...for fun.

Hampton University

Bachelor of Science, Finance

No one ever said, "You like to read? Major in English!" Nope. I was steered towards an accounting career, which I dismissed because credits and debits and balances made me cry. Instead I opted for corporate finance and liked it enough to pursue for 15 years. However I eventually realized I needed to divorce numbers because I was in love with words.
