"True Leaders Create Leaders, not Followers"


From my early days at the Boys and Girls Club in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, I first learned to navigate the potential of my aspirations. I couldn’t imagine that I would be leading digital transformations at global powerhouses like Black & Veatch and The Coca-Cola Company.

My introduction to technology began with an old, donated computer at the Club—a relic to some but a gateway to a new world for me. I was fascinated by its potential.

Fast-forward a few years, and I was pursuing a degree in Computer Science from Alabama A&M University, driven by the belief that technology could fundamentally enhance how we interact with the world.

After university, my career took a turn at The Coca-Cola Company, where I spent over a decade leading digital marketing initiatives. I managed global campaigns there and engaged millions of consumers through innovative technology.

This experience sharpened my skills in understanding technology and applying it strategically to drive business growth.

In 2018, I joined Young Living Essential Oils as the Executive Vice President of Digital and Strategic Planning. My role was to digitalize the global promotions process, enhancing efficiency by 300% and orchestrating the most successful digital Black Friday event in the company’s history, generating over $71 million in a single day.

The culmination of these experiences prepared me for my role at Black & Veatch, where, as CIO, I lead the digital transformation across 106 global markets.
Here, I introduced a venture capital model for funding innovation, significantly increasing our ROI and establishing the Global Business Innovation Committee.

My leadership philosophy has always been guided by a few core principles: innovation is continuous, leadership is about improving others, and true success comes from transformative collaboration.

As I continue my journey, I am driven by the potential to inspire and be inspired, to innovate, and to empower.

Technology is my tool, leadership is my passion, and making a meaningful impact is my mission.
