Regina began her walk in ministry at a very early age, serving in various capacities in the church. It would be the prayers of a godly grandmother who instilled the values of the presence of God in one’s life and the importance of family, that catapulted Regina’s will to serve others. Witnessing the important, mandated need to help others in need, Regina’s grandmother led her to live a life of ministry by serving others. Regina’s grandmother was a staunch supporter of diversity, and Regina was afforded was the opportunity to worship and fellowship with several different religious denominations.
Regina’s very first job was in a library. Always having a love for books, Regina’s dreams were to have a massive library, wall-to-wall, filled with books ranging in subjects from A to Z. This love of books led to Reginas becoming a published author and has enabled her to help others realize their dreams of seeing their own books in print.

Regina’s passion lies in helping others pursue their purposes in life. She believes we are all here for a purpose and she encourages others to strive wholeheartedly to reach their highest level of success. Regina fully believes that once you succeed, not only is your life blessed, those of your family members and countless others will be touched, thereby creating a domino effect of enlightenment.
