Education & Vocation Specialist
I am from Valdosta Ga and attended the Valdosta city public school systems. I grew up in a home with both parents, my farther who always provided for us, running his own truck driving company; my mother a homemaker, who made sure that the house and us always had what we needed to make the days easier. I have an older half-sister, a younger brother, and a sister as well. I had a very nice upbringing, one I would call upper class, but society would call middle class. My parents made sure that we had everything we needed, and most of what we wanted.
I became a teenage mother at the age of 16, and I named her Sequoyah. My mother made sure to raise her so I could continue school. I really didn’t know what it was like to be a mom because my mother made sure I could continue to have a teenage lifestyle. Although my parents tried all they could to support me, I still wanted to find my own way. I dropped out of school searching for my own way.
I continued to live my way for some time and made a change in in the middle 2000s and moved to Columbus Ga. In between time of living my own way I gave birth to three boys, Sequovy, Charles, and Corey and another girl named Senyah. Five of the best things about my life, and my two grandbabies Dre’quan and Hazel. In Columbus I continued my education and became a CARES (certified addiction recovery empowerment specialist). I love nothing more than helping others. I have known since I was a young girl that I was put on earth to help others.
I have so much to give to the world, and a hand full of pain, strength and hope, to help any persons in or seeking recovery. If you want to know more and need some lived experience you can find me at the Paula Crane Center, just ask for the job and educational coach.
