"You're Beautiful On The Outside When You Recognize Your Beauty On The Inside!" Having suffered from low self-esteem as the tallest and heaviest girl in third grade, with love and support from my parents, I learned the importance of having a healthy self-esteem. I share what worked for me. I went from feeling like the ugly duckling to REALLY empowering girls, all across the country.

Background Information

I am the author of a self-esteem, empowerment and etiquette book for girls ages 8 - 18. It is entitled, "How to be a Young Lady: Your Total Guide for Being the Best Possible You!" It encourages young ladies to believe in themselves, respect and love themselves. This interactive book has exercises in it that shows them how to boost their self-esteem, take care of their bodies as well as other great tips. Additionally, I am the President/CEO of Inner Beauty Solutions, Inc. which is a non-profit which facilitates self-esteem, empowerment and leadership workshops and programs for youth & adults. I am a consultant for world renowned community and faith based organizations as well as work with students on the college level to empower all that I work with. My services are utilized to educate backstage personnel for major hip hop concerts, as well as adults in recovery, professional women's organizations and private businesses. I am a business consultant to current and prospective business owners and clients include day care owners, alternative health practitioners, and other professional people who are looking to branch off into the world of consulting and improve their customer service skills. I have a bachelor's degree in Public Administration from C.W. Post College of Long Island University and a Masters in Professional Studies w/a concentration in Human Resource Management from Stony Brook University. Additionally, I am certified by Suffolk County Community College to teach Freshman Seminar Courses and trained as an exceptional customer service representative from the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York. My book was inspired by my former positions as a New York City Probation Officer in the juvenile unit, a former head NJCAA women's volleyball coach and College Admissions Administrator where I interacted with girls on a variety of levels. The one thing that these youth & young adults had in common, regardless of age, race, economic status, etc. was "low self-esteem". This made me determined to stop just talking about the concern, but act upon it.


2007-2008 Who's Who for Professional and Executive Women; Recognized as one of the Top 50 Most Influential Women in Business on Long Island, Proclamation from the Suffolk County Executive, Certificate of Appreciation from Nassau County Officials, Dean's Alumni Award among other accolades.
