My blog and website focus on my passions and main areas of interest. These areas usually include, but are not limited to, higher education, personal and professional development, African Americans, and current events.
I serve as the Assistant Director of Academic & Student Support at Grand Valley State University*. In this role I work with underrepresented undergraduate students and engage them academically and socially. I mentor and advise students from pre-admission to graduation. These students include students of color, low-income students, and first-generation college students. I teach students techniques to ease the transition from high school to college classes.
Outside of GVSU I enjoy helping high school students gain access to a college education. I assist these students with applications, essays, financial aid, entrance exams, college-course preparation, and cultural transitioning.
Additionally, I assist individuals and organizations with professional development in order to enhance personal growth and organizational effectiveness. This includes diversity education and team building.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, a Master’s degree in Training and Development, and a certificate in Project Management all from Illinois State University. I am also a certified True Colors® facilitator. Currently, I am pursuing my Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Eastern Michigan University.
I reside in Kentwood, Michigan with my wife Tawanna and our two kids, Mariah and Malcolm.
