I’m a woman with a passion for stilettos, a fierce faith in God and a message on my heart. Inside of you, beneath your hurt and fear, is a powerful woman too, destined by God to make a mark on this world. Whatever trials you’ve faced and heartaches you’ve endured, you are still that woman and I want to help you set her free.

As Seen On

Meet My Family


There was a time when I didn’t think that a powerful woman existed inside of me. From teen motherhood to divorce and a multitude of other struggles in between, I found myself feeling broken and defeated. It was in my lowest moments, when life had brought me to my knees that I realized I needed to stop living by fear and start living by faith. I made God my foundation and the life he’s helped me build is beyond what I could have imagined. Today, I walk in faith and courage with my head and my stilettos high.

It was after the loss of my sister in 2012 that I discovered exactly where I was walking to. My sister was my best friend and the perfect example of what it meant to live a life of serving. She was a source of support and inspiration to so many. I knew that I was being called to be the same.

I believe that every woman’s power and purpose is as unique as her experiences. Authenticity is everything. Whether I’m speaking to teen girls, corporate audiences, the clients of women’s shelters or a small circle of women in a group coaching session, I always speak my truth. My greatest fulfillment has come from using the good, bad and ugly of my life to inspire and empower other women to begin to heal themselves and let go of shame and fear. I took my truth and experience from the stage to the page, pouring my heart into my two books A Walk in Stilettos: How to Get Through the Struggle With Grace and A Walk in my Stilettos: 111 Affirmations to Help You Heal.

Being bold in my truth has earned me a reputation amongst my peers as a resilient, integrity-powered professional and an example of strength and courage. It’s been humbling to be recognized by several organizations including making the CIBWE’s list of ‘100 Black Women to Watch in Canada’ and being placed on the Black Canadian Awards ‘National Wall of Role Models.’ I was thrilled to be the first woman featured at Chapters Indigo’s 2016 International Women’s Day event. My heart leaps every time I see Linda Proctor’s foreword in my first book, and Derrick Jaxn’s in my second.

But none of those accolades compare to the joy I feel when I see women just like you read my words or use my lessons as inspiration to overcome obstacles and become their most powerful selves. The journey I’ve been on is a gift. I want to give thanks by giving back.

This is about you—that powerful woman inside you that’s yearning to be set free. My mission is to be an agent of transformation, helping you discover that there is no darkness in your life that is too dark for God to shine through.

I want to help you grow through your struggles and embolden you to step into your purpose. I believe firmly in stepping away from the rule books and using real life experiences and Godly principles. Through my one-on-one mentorship sessions, workshops and consulting, I offer the tools and motivation to conquer your fears, own your story, and uncover the confidence hidden within you.

I can’t wait to show you what God has in store for your life.
