I'll be honest (I love being honest), I don't sugar coat things. Always direct and straight to the point about everything. Originally a New York native, I relocated to Jacksonville, Florida in 2008 to be close to my grandmother. Now a proud and passionate business owner of three thriving companies. My first company was established while working full-time in Corporate America. The latter was established by resigning from my 13-year banking career to pursue my entrepreneurship goals in 2019.
Shortly after resigning from my corporate job, my leap of faith began to manifest. I was nominated as Professional Business Woman of the Year by the Jax Chamber’s Professional Woman’s Council for my work in the non-profit and entrepreneurship sectors. As such, a platform to start showcasing information and webinar series to help professionals and entrepreneurs jumpstart their goals, manage strategic growth, and streamline processes was developed via Strategic Specialists, LLC.
Reminiscing about my journey, which included multiple challenges, I learned to persevere by being adaptable to overcome them. Without those previous trials, the expansion of multiple businesses would only be a dream and my business savvy would not be as strong. Through my transparency and ability to connect with others, to meet them exactly where they are on their journey aligns me with amazing clients who are also passionate about their goals. This allows us to converse about skillsets and opportunities to enhance areas where growth can be developed.
Looking back on being homeless with my mother during my pre-teens years, I can truly say that it has made me the individual that I am today. The compassion received by mentors and volunteers during a difficult period in my life lit a fire within me to pay it forward. Now more than 20 years later, my focus remains to be the change I want to see in the world.
After having my businesses affected by the global pandemic, we went from thriving to surviving and back to thriving again! Now I am here to tell my story of how I preserved with limited resources from the beginning and stayed on top of my dreams/goals.

Your past does not define your future.
