Work for Genesis Healthcare as Director of Social Services, Vice President for the Georgia Northwest Region for the Nursing Home Social Workers Association. My heart’s desire is to empower and push others to their fullest potentials and not allow the past to determine their destiny and to only use the past troubles and circumstances as a stepping stone to reach into the future, to define and shape a clear purpose, a renewed life in Christ and spiritual principles to move forward and believe what God says is true of them and not allow circumstance to shape who they truly are. To teach and encourage others to look within their heart, soul, and mind and push forward with a renewed passion for life and not to allow any pass mistakes or flaws prevent future successes. Within each of us awaits a destiny of hope that is waiting to be unleashed.
