I was born in North Carolina, but lived and was raised in Hampton, Virginia as well as Washington, DC. I have worked with Rock Spring UCC for over 16 years and have had the pleasure working with great individuals such as Elsee Neighbors, Tony Butler, Tom, and Rosemary Fredricks.

And did not unlearn it.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
