I am from the State of New York in a little town called Mount Vernon. I lived there for 27 years before moving to Arizona. My BA is in Sociology with a minor in Education from St. Lawrence University which is located in Upper State New York. I have a Masters of Professional Studies from Cornell University, where I studied African American History, Education, and a little Law. I have taken several courses in Psychology/Couseling at Ottawa University. I have traveled extensive throughout the United States and spent four months studying in Kenya, Africa.
