I am the owner of the the award winning organization, Life Labs, LLC (awarded the 2015 Alabama Enrichment Provider of the Year) with a mission to teach children the character and life skills they need for success using memorable games and fun! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I created the curriculum and taught hundreds of students in 1st - 8th grades in after school workshops, church workshops and summer camps. I had such great results in my community, that I am now offering the curriculum to teachers and leaders online in an effort to serve all children, in every community. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I also work with high school teens in the online extension of Life Labs called Life Skills 4 College (please join me and 20,000+ followers on Instagram @LifeSkills4College) with my e-courses, teen entrepreneur group membership and one on one coaching. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I am also an occupational therapist who has worked with people of all ages and abilities. I have served in leadership positions throughout my 20 year OT career. In addition to my Life Labs business, I am also the Director of Rehabilitation (PT/OT/ST) for one of the nation's largest home health organizations.
My lessons and workshops are hands on, interactive and fun! Each workshop includes 3 games that actively engage the students in the topic. Between games, we give real life, age appropriate examples and instruction to solidify the lesson and use videos to supplement the message.

I am a ridiculously thrifty shopper (#GarageSaleFrequentFlyer), I LOVE to scrapbook but "ain't nobody got time for that!" with a full time OT job, thriving personal business (Life Labs) and 2 kiddos (8 and 10 years old) so my Instagram feed @LifeSkills4College is my modern day scrapbooking outlet, and I dig gansta rap (fo' real).
