The story of the early decades of my life and so called “childhood” is truly horrible. The trauma I experienced at the hands of others is something I work daily to remove from my mind. But the part I never want to forget is how much I recognize now, and even to some degree then, that Someone had a Hand of ultimate protection on me. I survived! I’m here!

I’m already on my way with that through my current job and my volunteer work with Safe Harbor Youth Inc.

I am now equipped to walk through this journey with a new mind set and keys to live to become the warrior God has designed me to be.
I currently work at First Baptist Church, a floor above where my journey began. My career goal is to become a Forensic Interviewer for victims of
I will encourage women to give CWJC an opportunity to turn their lives around. This program is second to none all the way across the board. I am so grateful that I followed God’s direction into this path. My history is HIS story.
