I studied English at University of Maryland, University
College. After a long career in bookkeeping and having a child, I
realized that I needed more and created DS Bookkeeping and
Consulting in 2012, building from many years of experience as a
professional bookkeeper. In August of 2012, after experiencing several
trials through entrepreneurship and being inspired by the journey of other
women that I met, I followed a vision from God to create a
publication that showcases and helps elevate women. I looked to
form an informational platform to promote upstart businesses owned by women across the US. I was inspired by my mantra, “Be Determined, Be Inspired, Be Blessed!” Women's Elevation Magazine hopes to put that mantra to the test by promoting, inspiring, informing, and elevating the minds of the women who read it. Regarding the magazine,I have said, "WE Magazine has helped bring my life full circle. Every woman I get to talk to, connect with, share
my story with and listen to theirs makes me feel more fulfilled. Whenever I speak to a woman about being a part of the magazine, I let them know that the magazine is for them, and that is my truth. I am here to bring their stories to the forefront...to write about the stories untold, to bring their struggles, laughter, and successes to the light in order to share them with likeminded women embarking on similar journeys."
I plan on coming out with two books in the 2014 year, including a book on my first year as an entrepreneur and a second book directly linked with my Naturally Me Movement, a movement created to teach self-love and the importance of self-esteem.
