"I quickly realized some things needed to change to help women regain stability in society. To remain free, we must learn how to change our behavioral thinking''.
After serving 20 years in an Illinois prison, I was granted an early
release from parole in 2005. I considered myself to be one of
the few that made a once in a lifetime horrible mistake and wanted to put
the past behind me, it was important to me to obtain my education while in
prison, I received a BA, AA, and AAS degree's, Commercial Arts &
Photography and Cosmetology.
After my release, I moved to Texas to start a new life. I've
completed two Master Programs; Substance Abuse Counseling
and Professional Counseling.
Despite my education, I've encountered many employment barriers. Today,
I am an Advocate for Criminal Justice and member of Reentry Advocacy
Project formerly known as the X-Offenders Counsel, Grassroots Leadership
and Texas Advocates for Justice. I found my voice when I
participated in community drama shows, sharing my life's story as it once was
and where I am today with Conspire Theater Austin.
