I was born and raised in a small country town in Virginia. Growing up I loved to sing, play instruments, and act. I pursued a career in the fitness industry as a young adult, and later as a cosmetologist. I enlisted in the US Marines in 2003 and began working in ministry in 2004 while still serving in San Diego, California. After I was honorably discharged from the Marines, my family and I relocated to Savannah, Georgia where we founded Agape Empowerment Ministries in 2009. I am an activist. I have lobbied on Capitol Hill, I have protested at the state Capitol of GA, and I have marched through the streets of downtown Savannah for equality and justice for all. In 2020 I was appointed the Chairwoman of the Board of Directors for The Reformation Project, as well as the Chairwoman of the Mayor’s LGBTQ Taskforce of Savannah. In 2021 I launched my TikTok presence as Godly and Gay and gained over 100K followers in 3 months. I think I found my niche and I’m not turning back.
