How would you describe being your authentic self?
Being authentic means accepting yourself as you are – flaws and all – while owning who you are and
staying true to who you are, your morals, your values, and all that encompasses you.

Was there ever a time in your life that you felt masked or being unauthentic in any way?
Absolutely. I was the queen of masking and hiding from myself – thus hiding my true self from others.

How did you overcome that situation and remove that mask?                                                                       There was not one core situation that caused my transition and healing. However the catalyst was being
abandoned by my mother at age 4. My healing and unmasking began when she died 3 years ago. And it
started with forgiveness of her for leaving and then forgiveness of myself for holding on to ill emotions
and allowing that situation to control me at my core.

What does walking in your identity mean to you?
Walking in your identity simply means owning your truth and answering the calling that was placed on
you by GOD. We were all born with purpose and often that purpose gets buried underneath the layers
of “life” that transpires over years. Once we peel those layers back, we can begin to SEE who we are
and our purpose becomes more clear.

What lessons have you learned by dealing with situations that had you once living behind a
mask? Never allow your pain to take up permanent residence in your heart. Forgiveness is the
key to internal healing. And love yourself enough to be comfortable in your authenticity.

Since removing the mask and walking in your identity, how has your life changed?
On a personal development aspect, I know my purpose. I have repaired and nurtured damaged
relationships. I am a better mother. I know how to love unselfishly and with limited conditions.
In business, I am a natural healer. I am a certified master life and transformation coach. I host
conferences throughout the year and speak to women about unmasking, owning their truth,
finding their purpose, and started the trend of unmasking globally. I jumpstarted my 6-figure
coaching practice in 2016 and have shaped and transformed the lives of many women globally. I
am a best-selling author of the women’s anthology series – Artificial Beaute, which is comprised
of women who have transitioned from hurt to healing and unmasked themselves! Right now, I
am currently booked through April 2018 for speaking & hosting engagements!


What words of encouragement would you give to others on being authentic in Christ and
walking in their identity?
Be still and allow GOD to do his work in your life. Everything that we go through is for a higher
purpose and he does not make mistakes nor does he put more on us than we can bear. Even in
the darkest times, with a little faith and patience, he pulls us through. So allow those triumphs
to become your testimony and your testimony will serve as a healer to another.
