Since our inception in 2005, I have ridden my motorcycle throughout the U.S. and Canada escorted by members of the motorcycle community promoting Breast Cancer Awareness and raising funds for Breast Cancer Research. After 13 years, over 150,000 miles ridden and over $151,000.00 raised for Breast Cancer Research – Divas For A Cure is still dedicated to the mission.

Why is this cause so important to me? It’s very personal.

“I’m not just a Rider, I’m also a Survivor!”

I am a four-time cancer survivor and also recovered from a cardiac arrest, a stroke and kidney failure.

My hobbies are motorcycling, photography, traveling, cruising and visiting my family and friends around the country.  I also enjoy singing and listening to R&B & Jazz.  Born in the Bayou State and raised in Natchitoches, LA.  I moved to Oakland, CA at age 15.

In 2007, I relocated to New Jersey.  I am the proud mother of 4 sons,  4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.

I am an Independent Consultant specializing in Office Administration, Project Management, Marketing, Web Site Design & Content Development.  Also, I am a Real Estate Property Administrator specializing in Medical Office Building Management.
