About me

Occupation Author I Mentor I Autism & Special Needs Advocate I Speaker I Driven I Determined I Blessed I Chosen I High School Class Clown (I'm so Proud of that lol)
Location Virginia, United States
Introduction I am married with two children. My oldest child is Michelle, a BEAUTIFUL & TALENTED typically developed Princess. My youngest child is James (affectionately known as JP), a HANDSOME & TALENTED Prince with Autism. I co-own Luv'em Like MINES Youth Services, Inc. with my husband Perry mentoring at-risk children ages 5-21 years old. I am also the author of God Chose Me, an interactive children's book inspired by my son's Autism and illustrated by my daughter. My purpose is to remind you that you were chosen to be in the life of a Special Needs Child. I make it plain and keep it real from the perSPECtive of a middle class Mom, trying to do the best she can for her child with Autism (with no practice lol); while at the same time trying not to overcompensate my daughter who is typically developed and does not require as much attention as my son with Autism. I do all this and try to make it look easy in the process lol. It’s a juggling act (and now I can add that to my list of skills lol).
Interests Autism Advocacy, Poetry, Comedy, Music, Sports, Dancing
Favorite Movies Tommy Boy (hands down, its hilarious slap stick comedy), Bill Cosby HIMSELF, Color Purple, Mary Poppins ("Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"), The Help, American Gangsta, Friday, Kevin Hart (anything), Harlem Nights, Scarface (and more movies I know all the words too, but can't think of right now lol)
