Empowering Women | Dismantling Patriarchy 
A little about me...

A Womanist Preacher and Teacher
My gifts are for teaching biblical texts in ways that help women discover and reclaim their unique voice and value. Because I bring all of who I am to every aspect of  my teaching ministry, my style is interactive, energetic, and empathic.

My passion is through the ministry of preaching, teaching, and writing to empower and honor women, and to dismantle those forces (grounded in patriarchy) that inhibit them from believing they are indeed, GOD's Masterpiece.
