About Me:

I am passionate about teaching everyone the importance of children and childhood and the sacredness of life. My work, on all levels is to see an end to war, violence and dis-ease and the establishment of peace and harmony around and across the world.

I am the founder and CEO of two significant international NGO's that have spawned a number of other projects and programs around the world: Peace of the World International at and the African American Women's Leadership Congress (see link below).

I am a published author, lecturer, international trader (import/export), community organizer, researcher, pedagogue, and employment specialist; a member of the Daughters of Erma, the Order of Kush, and an Eastern Star. Most recently, I have been appointed Chair of the Triumvirate for The Violet Revolution (visit
