By now you should know that I kind of get super excited when I hear girls and women talk about entrepreneurship. I'm an entrepreneur and PR Girl who believes the world needs more women in business and leadership. 

I believe that entrepreneurship is one of the most transformative ways to change anyone’s circumstances, including your own.  I want to help you cultivate your idea so that you are armed and confident to share your awesomeness with your community and in the rest of the world. 

I believe that as women we have unique talents and skills that make our families, our communities and this world a better place. And I believe that through entrepreneurship we create the freedom we need to unleash those abilities and impact our world. 


Thanks for stoping by!

Here's my story

Less than three months after starting a new job in late 2007 I couldn’t believe how bored I was. After my fairy godmother - Oprah, came through my tv one afternoon and asked a simple question, “Are you living your best life?”, I knew right then what I had to do. 

In January 2008 I tendered my resignation to break a two-year contract and opted to stay for just one year. I remember telling one of my closest friends my intention while driving to lunch one day and with parental nervousness, she said, “If you don’t have a job, what will you do?” 

I left in September 2008 with an idea of what I wanted to do. In March 2009, I officially became a business owner, and on May 15 2009 I signed the lease to my office. In between that day and today I’ve had countless challenges, ups and downs, tears, a few phones flung across the office, some banging on my desk, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat for the trail that my creative agency, Branes PR, has blazed.

I’m having a glass to celebrate the past and to plan the future. Cheers to you and your journey and knowing that your path is just that - your path! Celebrating #entrepreneurs and

The only how I was able to afford a college education was through a music scholarship. I played the trombone! One year my section auditioned, and made it to Show Time at the Apollo.  The Sandman almost came out to get me and my bandmates, but that's another story for another day!

I performed at the Apollo Theare in Harlem, New York.

I have a record.

Nothing Hill is one of my favorite movies. Period.  I’ve had a real life, “I’m also just a girl, in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” moment. Mine didn’t work out so well, but I still love love!

I thought I was Julia Roberts, well sort of...

I got a music scholarship to play my trombone in marching band and it was the only way I was able to afford college. It fueled an insane work ethic and a love for the state of Virginia. #HBCUGrad

This one time, at band camp...

Not just for my friends getting into things, but for the good stuff too. I have no issues starting or doing something if I don't see it happening around me. In 2013 my company started and maintains Global Entrepreneurship Week VI activities, because I wanted to have the chance to hang out  with and support other local entrepreneurs.

I'm an instigator.
