I am a communications professional, author and speaker on faith matters, business and professionalism. My philosophy is “excellence in leadership-by-example with integrity and without compromise.”
I am a member of the National Association of Christian Ministers.
I hold membership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and have served as President of the National Association of Credit Management, Greater Akron (OH), the National Association of Black Accountants, ACA International ® (American Collectors Association) and the Commercial Law League of America.
I presently serve as Church Administrator and Sunday school instructor at Akron Alliance Fellowship Church in Akron, Ohio. I teach adult Sunday school and facilitate a number of bible studies and church cell group sessions. Every now and then, I fill in for the pastor with a sermon.
I am a graduate of The University of Akron with a degree in Business and Organizational Communication, and earned a Master’s degree in Christian Studies at Crown College, St. Bonifacius, Minnesota. I am involved in Clinical Pastoral Education studies for full or part-time chaplaincy.
