"Top 37 Book Doctors in the U.S."
I've moonlighted as a writer and editor since high school, when I was editing papers for fellow students. Since then, I've polished hundreds of thousands of pages for authors of fiction and nonfiction (both creative and traditional), entrepreneurs, lawyers and businesses.
I'm a graduate of Brookhaven College and Western International University degree programs (with a few credits left to add University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) and Western Michigan University, El Centro College, University of Texas at Arlington, Writer's Digest School and USDA Graduate School certificate programs.
I believe in lifelong learning, so I'll always be a student of something! When I'm not editing, writing, reading or studying, you can either find me on my Specialized road bike or curled up with my fuzzy blanket watching Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham or Marvel movies.
I'm an active member of Editorial Freelancers Association and serve on the Board of Governors and on the Events Committee as Co-Chair as well as the EFA Conference Subcommittee. I also enjoy volunteering within my local community as well. I'm the current President of the Black Girls Do Bike-Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter and Cruiser Club President for Iron Riders Dallas. I serve as a volunteer with STEM, literacy and youth organizations as well, such as mentoring hackathons and technology camps, teaching computer and web technology courses and making my knowledge and skills available to as many other nonprofit organizations as time permits.
I'm the owner of Boss Meetings & Events, an independent meeting strategy consulting agency, and WordWiser Ink, the B2B arm of my editing practice. I am a co-founder of Writeful Places, the successor to Black Writers Reunion & Conference and Black Writers Events, both of which I also founded and directed from 2000-2012.
