About JL

The motivating force behind any element of change is enthusiasm and an affiliation with strengthening, the act of personal advancement and social engagement. The components that I find most prominent on the path towards success are outstanding leadership, examples of prevailing character, a thirst to acquire knowledge and an understanding of the power that stems from social engagement.

As a former Director of Student Engagement, Special Education Inclusion Specialist, Director of Sponsored Programs and Educator – I’ve experienced rewarding opportunities within the areas of urban youth engagement and educational enrichment for more than twenty years. Functional with surveying diverse demographics, developing educational campaigns and brainstorming with youth and industry leaders about their common interest – my focus is based on the theories of self-reliance, personal betterment, and establishing a desire to learn independently and successfully. I am a firm supporter of education and social and emotional development which can garner the seeds of empowerment.
