Hello! I’m 28 years old. My family is from Ghana, West Africa. I’m a mother to one daughter whom I adore. I’ve always enjoyed working with children and look forward to being a part of the St. Thomas Parish Staff.

Raised in the great Washington D.C. and still a fellow Washingtonian. I went on to attend Trinity University, an all women college and obtained a psychology degree in order to understand the world around me and to help others. Afterwards I began jobs that included working DCPS and organizations in the area helping out communities. That’s when my path to using art as way to help others began and I attended George Washington University for a masters in art therapy. My goal is to someday make and create alongside others for healing.
