I have always enjoyed reading and, in turn, teach what I learned. Opportunities to share my knowledge have been in academia at the high school level, and currently, at the graduate and undergraduate levels at a university; in state government; in public radio; in the corporate sector and in healthcare nationally and internationally. Some of my endearing and personal successes are seeing people move from a position of little or no knowledge on a subject to becoming knowledgeable, skillful and confident.


My education includes a doctorate in Public Health from Morgan State University (Baltimore, MD); a master’s in Public Communication from American University (Washington, DC); a bachelor’s in Telecommunications from Morgan State University (Baltimore, MD); certification in Project Management; and credentialing in electronic health records. I have been recognized for countless hours of service to the community receiving several citations and awards for my contributions.

I am passionate about educating, music and traveling. I love the outdoors and I am especially enthusiastic about hiking and planting my vegetable garden. Watching my two teenage daughters play soccer and run track are also among my favorite activities. I am married to my favorite guy, Haydn.
