My Story

As an award-winning communication strategist, former public relations and marketing executive and journalist, I understand the power of words and stories in shaping and changing perception and thus our reality.

As a seminary-trained minister, I have a deep appreciation for the role our values, faith and philosophies play in our narrations. Personal storytelling and branding are pathways to self discovery, healing and positive change. To learn more about my spiritual journey, and storytelling ministry visit me at  DIVINEPORT.
