I have worked in community service for over 20 years, helping to provide everything from affordable housing to school supplies to those in need.   I love classic television, “good” food, living well and having a good laugh!  I’m always optimist, trusting God in all things.  I have a gift for seeing the gifts in others and have embraced the responsibility of being  the “inspirationenergy” needed to help you begin to live a life of purposeful greatness, a greatness that is measured more by what you’ve helped others to accomplish than by what you’ve accomplished yourself!  Read more about me here!


I am a graduate of Florida International University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Certified in Family Team Conferencing.

I have over 20 years of experience in Executive Non-Profit Management, Community Development and Advocating for the needs of people.

Today, I use my life, gifts & professional experience to help people (mostly women!)  to discover their gifts, establish goals and set practical & spiritual strategies for moving forward…begintobelieve.com!



There is an infinite amount of information out there on how to live your best life, inspiring and advising us on every subject from finances to fitness to finding your own true purpose. I scour the internet in search of inspiration that is authentic, credible and worthy of telling my friends about because I realize that when we are at our most vulnerable, we need to reach out and stand on hope and direction that can not only withstand the weight of our challenges but is strong and true enough to help carry us over . I feature those who have accomplished a state of purposeful greatness in hopes that their stories will help us to do the same.   When we’ve finished, we will have learned, laughed, smiled and cried and begun to conquered our life challenges together, great and small, one moment at a time while helping someone else along the way…..which is the most important part of the journey!
