Who I am
First and foremost, I am a child of God. A proud New Orleans native, I’ve
worked at every educational level as a teacher, adjunct professor, educational consultant, professional development specialist, and administrator. I received my BA and M. Ed degrees from the University of New Orleans and my doctorate degree in K-12 School Leadership was earned at Regent University in 2014.
I currently serve as an administrator at the elementary level in Virginia, an
adjunct Dissertation Chair at Regent University, a Curriculum Writer at
Learning for Life, and an Instructional Leader at Defined Learning. In 2020 I
started my own company, AmplifyED Educational Consulting to customize
on-demand learning experiences for adults.
Professionally, I am passionate about building the capacity of teachers,
supporting emergent educational scholars, scholarly writing, researching,
and serving. Personally, I enjoy reading big books, taking long walks, and
short road trips. My greatest joy is spending time with my family -
especially my husband Robin and our adorable doggie Boudreaux.
Why I Joined BWEL
I joined BWEL because I believe in the collective value of Black women
leaders in education. We are all walking this journey to serve and impact
the next generation of future leaders. As Proverbs 27: 17 states, iron
sharpens iron. For me this means we can amplify our individual impact
through our sisterhood. I want to be part of a platform that supports and
promotes us. Finally, I want to surround myself with a group of dynamic
like-minded professional black women who share this educational

What I do for BWEL
I serve as a Board Member and PD Co-Chair for BWEL. I am passionate
about providing a space for black women to connect, collaborate, and
become better together. While much of the professional development we
attend in our roles is a job requirement, BWEL’s PD committee prides itself
on providing experiences that meet the needs and interests of black
women who lead in the educational sphere.
