I am also the Founder & Chief Partnership Strategist for GLUE™ ( which builds profitable partnerships for products and personalities.

During my tenure as Sr. Director of Marketing at LaFace Records and for almost two decades as the visionary at GLUE, I have built relationships with A-list celebrities and C-suite executives . During this time, I quietly served as a coach, spiritual advisor, and mentor to successful high achievers.

It is my passion and purpose to work with those who know how to achieve success, but are challenged with how to live successfully.

Success has filtered their life into 10% of who they really are and I help them develop the tools to invest in the other 90%. Benefits of my coaching include clarity, personal development, spiritual growth, life skills to manage success, tools for work/life balance, solutions for career and personal transition, crisis management, and practical life application.
