Areas of Specialty

A trainer, a mentor and a coach in delivery of agency, an educationist, a credit officer, and a pastor.

What matters to you?

Giving voice to the voiceless and power to the powerless.

What are some wise words to live by?

"To give is to receive. when you give out, you create room to receive more and new things. When you just receive and don't give out, you are compared to a dead see, with no fresh water coming in and the water inside it will ultimately start to stink. You will finally be full and can't take in more and what you have will go stale. Share your knowledge and resources cheerfully with others. These will come back to you packaged with freshness and advancement."

What brings you joy?

Seeing smiles in the faces of the formerly disenfranchised persons. Seeing them realize their potential and acting on their newly acquired knowledge to change their lives for the better.
