I want to heal the world one person at time.
I am a writer and actress outside of being a therapist. I love to do movie night with my two sons and husband. My absolute favorite is Friday date night.
I work out at 4:30 every morning with 1 hour of cardio.
I wish I had the time to read books more than once!

As a member of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. I am forever challenged to make the world a better place by my acts of service, professional work, and in my everyday life.
I have a spoiled fur baby who you will see from time to time because he loves screen time! His name is Leo Johnson Smith, named by my baby son.
