Like you, I have many roles. In my personal life, I am wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, church member, and volunteer. In my professional life, I am an author and speaker, a counselor educator and supervisor, and Director of Counseling and Director of Women’s Ministries at Triad Baptist Church. I also am the owner of Repurposed Life Ministries, Inc. It’s a lot. But, I have a lot of support, enjoy what I do, and believe fully that I’m doing what God has called me to do.
As for professional credentials, my PhD in counseling and counselor education is from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My master’s degree in counseling is from Wake Forest University. My undergraduate degree in journalism is from Elon University. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Supervisor in North Carolina and serve or have served as a full-time counselor education faculty member in the following graduate programs: Piedmont International University (July 2019 – May 2020), Wake Forest University (2013-2019), and Gardner-Webb University (2010-2013).
