To be effective as Maryland’s only defense and security MBE, taking my military discipline from army colonel to American corporate has our MBE leading the way with African American women in business.

Not just any business, but a high-tech defense and security business using the best of technologies in the 21st century. My team and I are here to create jobs in Maryland, open a 100,000-square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, and establish a global training center with the goal of training as many as 20 students per month.

Working with Governor Wes Moore “It is through sustained and invaluable partnerships that Maryland’s economy will thrive,.. Through programs like EARN, we can both meet the demands of businesses and support workers by cutting through red tape and providing access to resources that will create meaningful opportunities for growth.”
