I am still in awe! What an honor and privilege to be selected as one of 9-winners at the 7th Annual Meeting & LocalMotion Awards from a pool of 50 nominees. This is a HUGE deal of me. Prayer, Patience, Persistence and Partnering with Purpose are my 2017 goals.
I am so thankful that Local First West Michigan recognizes small businesses like mine and provide a wonderful network and community for locals to connect in. Shout out to my mentor, Pastor Veverly Austin for the push and helping me step out of my comfort zone. My friend Michelle for always being willing to volunteering and help at my events. My editor Corinthia (as a writer its necessary to have an extra set of eyes reading your work) thank you for the late night editing sessions. To all my Naturally ACT & ACTPhotoMedia community Thank you for trusting me with your hair and allowing me to capture some of your most precious moments.
To my brother Branden who took an eight-hour trip just to support me for my nomination, not knowing if I would win. Most of all my AMAZING Mother Alyce for always telling me I can do ANYTHING I put my mind to; Thank you listening to your doctor and not coming, you are always my biggest cheerleader. I love you so much!!
