Meet the C.E.O

Thank you for visiting our site.


We're glad you're interested in learning more about our services & programs. I hope you're as excited as we are about Project LINK.

The Tampa Bay area has been my home for 30 years. I was ecstatic when I got involved with Project LINK.


I started out as a board member, then the board asked me to lead the agency. 

It's been a meaningful and purposeful journey, fulfilling my passion to engage others while thinking freely.


Initially, I was a bit nervous about taking on such a huge task - but I used my human services experience, confidence, and entrepreneurial experience to get me through.

Being an entrepreneur gave me a sense of work ethic that anyone who owns a business can relate to.


My career choice isn't about getting rich, but about enriching the lives of my extended community family.


Collaborating with people from all walks of life has taught me how to stretch, reach out where God is, aim high, and take risks for the good.
