BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:My specialty is passionately delivering loyal communication services to my clients all while wearing the color red consistently. My purpose is to lead with more strategic ways to better connect with diverse audiences that will benefit the wealth of my clients. Through my extensive network and resources in media, press, technology, innovations, government, nonprofits, entertainment and education, I have become more valuable to the growth of my clients' successes. I love what I do and many say I make it look it easy, which is the beauty of public relations.
There are a million public relations or marketing experts in this world. However, I am the one that consistently wears the color red, which makes me stand out from the crowd. In fact, the color of choice has positioned me as "The Lady in Red that gets the job done," and I love it! Another thing that I love is my main competition is yesterday's results. If I focused on comparing myself to people, I would never amount to my true potential because I would be shadowing someone else's success track. It is difficult to view other strategic communicators as competition when we all call on each other for help or guidance; however, where I lacked previously is my benchmark for improvement and that is due to my desire to constantly want better results. This is what makes me special. God uniquely created me to shine my light in others' lives and because of that; there is never traffic in my lane. What God has called me to do; he has uniquely designed for me and no one else.
THE STORY:About a decade ago, I was "The It Girl." Everyone knew to call on me to be inform about what was going on or who was the next big thing. As a socialite, I began planning, promoting and sending out communications about events, people and upcoming brands. I credit my humble beginnings to the constant networking I did as an undergrad at Prairie View A&M University. Everyone knew who I was and I knew everyone. I always had a keen sense of being the plug and began walking in my true purpose as a strategic communicator (Public Relations and Marketing Professional).
Through internships with Youtube, Def Jam/ G.O.O.D. Music and full-time positions with Pepsi, I leveraged my experiences from the undergrad with real-world encounters of exercising strategic communications and placements. However, I have always been an entrepreneur and that is why I am running my own Public Relations and Marketing Consultancy full-time present day.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:Everyday is a proud moment for me because I am doing what I love. Being featured in Chroniclestoo! is a huge milestone and achievement.
CHILDHOOD YEARS:I have always been an entrepreneur at heart and I always knew I would be successful. Selected to be in the Talented and Gifted programs, a Peer Assistant in Leadership and Skills, Re-founder of Club Chic, captain of the step team, President of Student Council as a child, leadership has always been a part of who I am. I am the second sibling of six, so responsibility and accountability have always been a part of me. My mother was very hard on me growing up and showed me plenty of tough love. That is why until this day, I am naturally hard on myself.
Coming from Peoria, Illinois, there was not much opportunity for success. I realized this at a young age and promised to live a more abundant life with God being at the head. I am hungry for success and never content on where I am. Yes, I am a “go-getter” and you will not our work me. Many men say I work harder than them…they are right!
SUCESS:I have always been interested in finding the solution to problems and I am glad I changed my undergrad course of study from Chemical Engineering to Business Marketing. Staying true to myself is what matters most. I never cared what anyone else wanted for me because I have to sleep at night with the choices I make, not them. Much like my undergrad career, my life now is a reflection of more self-discovery and I constantly making sacrifices live a happy life. That is the true success to me...happiness.
RULES/PRINCIPLES:Control what you can control and give the rest to God.
