I have obtained an associate degree in early childhood education from American Public University, and I have also been an active and ordained minister since 2012, under Pastor Rodney O. Bozeman Sr. I have gained substantial knowledge and education of the Bible by obtaining my Bible Theology and Ministerial studies degree at Missouri Christian University. I have also obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Liberty University. I am proud to say I have skills such as Customer Service, Marketing, Finance, Administration, and Management experience within and outside of the industry.
