I was born and raised in Pickens, South Carolina. I always had dreams and big goals but was afraid to act on them! One day at the age of 25 years old God told me I called you to be better and do better! It was this point in my life where I decided that I got to get something done! At this point, I went on both a spiritual journey and educational journey! 15 years later, I have now earned an Associates of Arts Degree, Associates of Science Degree. A Bachelor of Science Degree, Masters Degree, and an Medical Doctorate Degree!
