My journey began when I was a young mother, and life threw a curveball that challenged me in ways I never expected. The shame from early motherhood stripped me of confidence, self-belief, and that I was not worthy of anything, especially in the workplace.
The sudden shift to motherhood brought new insecurities and self-doubt. I questioned life, my abilities, my worth, and even my identity. These insecurities kept me from taking risks, articulating my thoughts, and making my voice heard. I believed that everyone else was more competent and intelligent than I was.
At the point when I wanted to grow my career, these feelings of doubt were barriers that held me back from stepping outside my comfort zone, embracing new, challenging opportunities, and taking risks. That’s when I realized – this wasn’t just my story. It was the story of countless women limiting their potential, standing in the shadows of their dreams.
This realization was the genesis of my signature talk, Life Designed by You for You™. I decided to channel my personal experiences, struggles, and triumphs into a purpose – to empower women to shed their self-imposed limitations and start living their dream life. Because your life is not dictated by external circumstances but by the leader within you. That leader is waiting to be awakened, ready to design a life of authenticity and fulfillment.
So, I invite you, just as I have invited myself, to take a moment and reflect. Are you ready to unleash the leader within and transform your life from the inside out? To stop living on the sidelines and instead start shaping your own narrative? If so, remember, it’s “Life Designed by You for You™.”

I’m Haitian-American, born and raised in beautiful, sunny Florida, where my parents migrated to upon arriving in the USA in the ’70s. Growing up, I watched my mother work hard jobs like migrant worker and housekeeping to provide what we needed. My mother would often tell me, “when you grow up, work hard and do more than what I’m doing,” However, I became a mom at 16, so I thought my dreams of going to college and getting a good job were shattered. Eventually, I would learn that advancing my career would take more than hard work. It would take building value-added relationships and influencing skills and a belief system that I am enough. Becoming a mom was the fuel I needed to drive my passion for purpose. Getting kicked out of high school a few months before my high school graduation, failing the GED 3x before I passed it, failing all of my college courses my first year of college, and a boss from hell did not keep this firecracker digging deep to uncover the brilliance within. I was determined to transform the legacy of my family and it would start with me. No matter how big the dream, you have everything in you to make it happen. Dream Big!
How do you do that, you ask? Mindset, whether we see things in life as opportunities to grow and learn OR we accept things as they are believing that they cannot be changed, mindset is at the core of all success, the transformation of values we hold, and the behaviors we exhibit.
Purpose is becoming and every human being has value and purpose.
Success does not happen alone. You need people.
Owning your career and your development is the leadership needed to push your career forward.
Belief in yourself must be combined with conviction of your vision.
Are you ready to live the unlived life inside of you?
