This site is a gander of my life and journey. Come with me as we sail through this journey of wellness.







    I have a true passion about proper nutrition and what fuels the body with good stuff. I enjoy sampling, trying and using all natural products that don’t have harsh toxic chemicals. A relief or the skin is good products. I am heavily engaged in the community i.e. providing group meet ups at different locations i.e. Fleet Feet, Equinox and Anacostia Park for events surrounding wellness. I have been told by so many people that I am a beacon of light, motivator and encourager. I believe that everyone has a gift and they just need to unlock the door the use it.







    MOTTO: SELF LOVE AND SELF CARE COSTS NOTHING AND YOU GAIN EVERYTHING.







    A little more about me: I am a recipient of the Humanitarian Award from Bay State College in Boston (1984) Recognized by staff, advisors and professors for always willing to help others. ”







    I joined Black Girls Run in 2012 where I started my real running journey. From that group I became one of the ambassadors for the DMV area. I am so grateful for the ladies that I met we have culminated long standing friendships and a true sisterhood. Example we run races together, brunching, weddings and other joyous occasions. In 2016 I was the recipient of Black Girls Run Leadership Award. This is just the beginning.







    Let’s cultivate a life that we can be healthier, resilient and move more together."
