    “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.”

    With a diverse background in media, corporate communications, and public sector employee training, I assist ministries in keeping their operation true to their vision, mission and goals.
