I am a Black African American woman who has faced many barriers, identity confusion due to spiritual disconnection, family conflict, racial, gender disability, mental health stigma, social injustice, and inequalities. Yet, still, I am chosen, anointed, faith-fueled, and committed to carrying out the CUE mission. My unique 35 years preparation process includes hands-on learning to become a social entrepreneur creatively utilizing my innate chef, counseling, disability, food, and mental health justice advocate skills to establish two Substance Abuse Disorder treatment, Focus To Life and Extended Services Program, and Food For Your Soul Ministries Non-profit. My academic training includes a Masters Science in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Counseling and a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with an emphasis on Organizational Leadership. I am a consultant, National Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, Peer Specialist Supervisor, Mental Health First Aider, Certified Wellness Recovery Action Plan facilitator. and a Board of Behavioral Science Registered Associate Clinical Counselor. My heartfelt desire is to effectively utilize the culmination of my lived experiences to join the legacy of past and present Black African Americans called to serve as healers-helpers, and to develop mutual peer relationships with black African American women and youth, and other individuals.
