ABOUT

This is a site designed to provide information on a plethora of topics from health and wellness, to diet and exercise, fashion and fun, empowerment and entrepreneurship!  It is also intended to serve as a Go-to-Guide for brilliant women in business to find listings for consulting and services in various industries.  Being a woman requires a great deal of strength, poise, patience, delicacy, and confidence.  There is enough pressure with all of society's unrealistic "ideal" images portrayed on the many forms of broadcast and social media without having to worry about competing with another woman for the right to be a boss.  More than being a boss, we want to be fabulous and fierce, but also worthy and respected.  Brilliant Girls Link Up seeks to inspire women of all ages and races to first understand the power of knowing and loving yourself, and then understand the power of embracing ALL that it means to have been created a WOMAN.  We are all here for a purpose, and to figure out what your purpose is - you must first know who you are.  There is power in collaboration, and Brilliant Girls Link Up equips women of many backgrounds with the tools and insight to collaborate with like-minded women and to uplift and be uplifted by those who share so many common interests, cares, challenges, insecurities, and passions.  It takes work when you are striving to become the best version of yourself, but we must all become our best selves in order to see our best future!  We have daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, and so many others looking to us to lead - now is the time.  Lets lead with love, uplift with inspiration and encouragement, and prosper through the power of collaboration.... all we have to do is Link Up!

      Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina - I had a strong foundation in my parents.  Loved, Raised and Guided by a God-fearing, Praying Mother and an UnApologetically Black and Proud Preacher for a Father... Sister to a Fierce and Fabulous Sister and an Intelligent and candidly Cool Brother.... and Loyal Friend/Family to some Really Dope Friends/Family - so I got the Best of Everything in Me... and Real Love all around Me.  Proud product of a historically Black University - a tenacious South Carolina State University Bulldog (of which I was only made aware of through my participation while a student at West Charlotte High School in the Campus Connections Program founded in Charlotte, NC... special thanks to the Baucoms for the awareness they brought to so many of Our Own Institutions)!!!).  When I finished with my Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with a minor in Biology - I came back home to work in healthcare and continued to strive for my goals both in healthcare and in other endeavors.  While working multiple jobs, I then pursued and obtained a Masters degree in Health Administration and now work in a healthcare system - while still pursuing the things of which I am passionate about so that I can Live Life More Abundantly and Never have to regret Not Going for What I Want!!  

       I have been blessed with mentors in healthcare and in life - to uplift me and remind me that I am capable.  I am grateful but also mindful of the numerous people who do not have the resources or role models to give them guidance and encouragement on a consistent basis.  Brilliant Girls Link Up is my way of reaching out to those who may be searching for advice or general information on women's health and other professional advice; along with tips for women and young girls trying to find their way and make their mark on the world.  Or those who may want to know what's happening in music, fashion, or in their very own community.  I hope people are also able to use this page to reach out to people in industries of interest to them whether it is for services or networking.

        So much of Who I Am is Attributed to the Faith I Have and the Hard Work I put In.... another Part of Why I Am is because of The People that God has Placed in My Life... and More Importantly for the Purpose I Have Been Given!!  My Hope is that the Links here Lead Others to Happiness, Better Health, Fun Fashions, Cool Music, Bubbling Business and Back to the Page Time and Time Again!  Enjoy Brilliant Girls Link Up...!!!!!!!

Love,
