I was born in Brooklyn New York 1958. I was physically disabled as I was not able to walk correctly and spent my formative years up until 11 years old in the Wheel chair and in special education in the NY education system. I was mainstreamed into a regular education program and excelled by skipping grades 3 and 4. I graduated high school soon after turning 17. I attended CCNY and was the first in my entire family to attend and graduate from college. Along the way I received numerous accolades and awards for service to the Black community and community at large. I earned an academic scholarship at the University of Minnesota and was the youngest in my graduate class. I received my masters degree in Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology in 1985. I began my Psychotherapy career by working in the university level and later worked in the community with families, youth and children. I married in 1989 soon after returning to the Twin Cities after a two year hiatus. My first born came in 1991 and my last child was born 4 years later. I began to experience employment related struggles around 2002 and this led to a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome in 2006. Since then I have become highly knowdegeable in the area and a leader in the Autism community with a successful practice with individuals on the spectrum. I have joined the Autism Society of Minnesota and facilitate the Adult with Asperger's group twice monthly. I am currently developing a book journaling the varied emotions and experiences of living on the spectrum and I am developing a think tank that will support those living on the spectrum to know how to succeed in the vocational world. I am hopeful that these endeavors will help me to develop a writing/lecturing opportunity for my self as that is where my passion and bliss is.
