What does Black History Month mean to you?
Black History Month is when the country pauses to both acknowledge the sacrifices and honor the outstanding and invaluable contributions that African Americans have made and continue to make to this country. For me, it is a time of deep, intentional reflection and personal pride in how far we’ve come, as well as a reminder that Black History is an ongoing work in progress. It’s still being made every day, and it’s something that should be celebrated all year.

What song is your personal anthem?
Rose in the Dark by Cleo Sol

What is your definition of a hero, who is yours, and why?
My definition of a hero is someone who is admired for their courage and/or outstanding achievements. My mama is my hero. Always has been, always will be. She is the most selfless person I know. She goes out of her way for people, and she always makes things happen. She’s a go-getter and a go-giver. She’s not someone who worries incessantly. She’s full of faith, and she lives her life to the fullest. She’s amazing. I want to be her when I grow up!

What’s the biggest goal for your business in 2024?
The biggest goal for my business in 2024 is to connect with more people and grow my personal brand. People do business with people that they like, know, and trust. In the real estate business, it doesn’t matter how savvy you are if people cannot connect with you first. Without a relationship, you never make it to the point of being able to flex your expertise. So, my goal is to communicate through my brand that I am not only a savvy businesswoman but, most importantly, likeable and trustworthy as well. To that end, I intend to help at least 12 families who have the goal of home ownership on their vision boards achieve that goal.

Can you share a favorite book or author that made an impact on your life?
One of my favorite books is Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual by Luvvie Ajayi Jones. It’s a really funny, in-your-face book about how to tackle fear and find your voice so that you can live your life freely.
