My Current Job/Company:
National Speaker, Trainer, Facilitator, Consultant for StreetTalk with The “Amazing” Tei Street
I work with groups, mostly youth, to help them find the “amazing” that is within each of them. I want to assure that each one knows that they matter in the universe.
God, my sons & the rest of my family (those of birth & of choice), my friends, & my work!
Sons- Kenneth & Christopher, My parents- Alvin & Theresa (who will celebrate 50 years of marriage on September 9th) my Sister Tanya, who is also my best friend, my brother Monte & my plethora of nieces, nephews and Godchildren.
My parents, my sister, Kathy Espy, Joyce Beatty, W. Shawna Gibbs, the 22 Founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Emery Hill (deceased), Pastor Rich Nathan & all the young people who make good choices in a “peer-pressured” world.
In Ohio for a quick getaway, I love Yellow Springs. Away, I love a quiet villa on Kiawah Island watching God paint the sky with a sunrise & sunset.
My Pet Peeve:
Negative people who rain on other people’s “parades” and people who talk about their dreams but refuse to live them.
Anything my mother cooks, Facebook and men.
Humble. Christian. Proud. Fun. Happy. They run much deeper than I can adequately honor.
Spent living my dreams, while watching my sons live out their legacy.
My first love is God! Next it is celebrating my sons, cheering on my friends and laughing!

My Quote on Life:
“I know the plans I have for you said the Lord; Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” Jeremiah 29:11
Earrings & sunglasses.
My Advice to Young Women:
Let the choices you make today, be choices you can live with tomorrow. Don’t give all of you away. Find good mentors and never burn your bridges behind you.
How I Balance it All:
As a single mom, I start by giving myself permission to be human with flaws. Then, I roll up my sleeves, and with the help of my agent, I try to keep a good calendar of business and personal events. I always prioritize being a mom and I am able to do that because I have a GREAT support system of friends and family who act as a village for my son.
