I am a  Classical Singer, Entrepreneur, Mom, and Director of Operations for a thriving small business located in an opportunity HUBzone in Silver Spring, Maryland, where I also live. I attended high school at Immaculate Conception Academy in Washington, DC, then studied music at East Carolina University in North Carolina. My father's family came from the Bahamas (Eleuthera) and settled the area now known as Coconut Grove in Miami, Florida. My parents met in Washington, DC, while attending St. Luke's Episcopal Church. My father worked his way through college and law school, then served in the United States Army during the Korean War. My mother is a former opera singer and educator from Washington, DC. In 2018, I became the first  Bahamian American woman to run for United States Congress in  Congressional District 8.
