I’m a lawyer and financial coach. I battle with sickle cell disease, which is a blood disorder that causes chronic debilitating pain.  Because of this, I was left with thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost income from being sick all of the time.

In 2012, I finally decided to get serious about my health and my finances.  In 2018, I reached my lifelong goal of financial freedom.  

Today, I work with other professional women to show them the path to financial freedom too!  Here at Dollars Plus Sense, you will learn how to manage your money better and finally get to live your best life. Feel free to send me a message, I would love to hear from you!
