Memphian by choice, Mississippi raised, born on the east coast. I am a retired medical laboratory scientist turned entrepreneur. I currently am the co-founder of two startups. I also facilitate a 10-week pre-accelerator that helps entrepreneurs test their assumptions about their business ideas, I am also a doctoral candidate studying policy analysis. I participate on community and non-profit boards. My deep passion and committment to the Memphis community keeps me motivated to work hard to help others thrive! When I'm not helping my community or entrepreneurs I relax by listening to music, watching reality tv (a guilty pleasure, lol), traveling as much as I can and laughing every chance I get. Beyonce is my spirit animal and Janet Jackson is my fairy Godmother.
