  • Life Coach

And the most important title she carries is MOMMIE as she has a daughter.

A woman who started out as a runway model who quickly found out her skillset would be better utilized off of the runway and not on the runway. This pushed her to found Tampa Bay’s very own Stride For A Cause. A fashion show produced that pays homage to Breast Cancer Survivors, in which proceeds from the show are given to survivors to pay off medical bills.

 
Her youth foundation Glow Up Girl was inspired by her upbringing, she wanted to be that open journal for girls her age to help them push through the same areas in which she found herself struggling in at her age.
 
She is a dynamic podcast host as she launched her own platform title Chat With China. This platform was produced to allow us as people the opportunity to speak on topics we want and most of the time need to have without the fear of being judged.
