Though it is not always easy, I strive to be the best mother I can be. I would not trade motherhood for anything else. A nurse and also a patient advocate. As an entrepreneur, I own and operate Caribbean Essence Boutique where I gained many friendships, social rewards, and knowledge. I have been blessed with good health, great family, and great friends. But most of all I am who I am . . . I am me.”
