Addressing the cyclical nature of issues in education does not yet place my work in the area of "firsts" but instead demonstrates my tireless commitment to ensuring the uplift and academic success of all students and teachers with whom I interact. This work includes addressing equity in education, school disproportionality issues and creating experiential mentorship opportunities to enhance the overall quality of a student's educational experience.

Child Welfare

Professional Firsts

While working for DCFS, I was able to use my degree to help children and families whether that would be helping them physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. After a year with working in Child Support Enforcement, I transitioned to a different agency within DCFS. I became a Social Services Analyst 2 in the Child Welfare IV-E unit in January of 2015, which deals with evaluating if a child qualifies for federal and/or state funds while in the DCFS and OJJ (Office of Juvenile Justice) custody. With my hard work and knowledge of the work we do in the IV-E unit, I was promoted to Social Services Analyst 3 position in April of 2017, which I was able to use my leadership skills that I have learned through my parents and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated to be able to train analysts and help the supervisor when in need. Then, I took a chance and a leap of faith to be able to utilize my skills and knowledge within the unit to take a promotion as the Child Welfare Support Specialist at State Office for DCFS. By this time, I only have 4 years with working for the State of Louisiana. Most recently with achieving 5 years with working for the State of Louisiana and DCFS, I have been promoted as the Social Services Analyst Supervisor for the Baton Rouge Regional IV-E unit. All of these accomplishments have been achieved by the age of 28 years old, which there are not a lot of women especially black women that have achieved these goals and accolades while working for DCFS and the State of Louisiana.

Professional Firsts

First Russell County High school teacher to serve on the post secondary committee to develop the articulation agreement between the high school and local community colleges. These agreements allowed students to bypass entry level college business courses by earning college credit for select business courses taught in high school.

I served as chairperson of the new Attendance Committee for Russell County High. The committee functioned as an appeals board for students who lost credit due to excessive absences.

As FBLA advisor my students operated the first school store. They used their skills to operate this business while providing a service for fellow students.

I was the first teacher in the district to be promoted directly to central office as director of federal programs and student assessment.

I have engaged in several first (unique) efforts to promote mental health in the African American church community. I have published several articles on pastors, clergy and mental health. For instance, the Clergy Depressive Counseling Survey, the first of its kind, examined the views of over 200 pastors in California to find out how they defined depression and what their views were on the best treatment for depression. Through the Urban Pastor's Study, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, I interviewed 48 urban pastors in California and Illinois to discover their lived experiences of counseling in an urban context. I am the head of the Psychological, Social and Resource Ministry under the Central California District Council of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, the first ministry of its kind to promote mental health awareness in the Black Apostolic Pentecostal community. Also, I have a private practice - Direct to God Counseling and Consulting - that focuses on mental health healing for African American church communities that have experienced violence or trauma.
