When I sit back and reflect on the significant events in my past, the important aspects of my current life, and my goals, I appreciate what life was, is and will be. I was born in Springfield, Ohio and raised in Nashville, TN by my mother. I attended Metro Davidson County Schools. I attended Lane College and graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Criminal Justice. August of 2015, I will be graduating from Bethel University with a Masters in Conflict Resolution. I am proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. I enjoy being a Metro Nashville Police Officer since May of 2001. Being the first black female Negotiator for my department gives me great pleasure in knowing I have opened the door for others to follow. I am blessed and take pride in being a God fearing woman, a great mother, daughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend. In my spare time, I enjoy teaching dance from several different genres. I am blessed that the Lord has given me my family that I cherish, my career and my future. I look forward to what else God has in store for me.
