Hello My friend, It’s truly a honor that you are allowing me to assist you in creating, developing or growing your nonprofit dream. My mission is to empower, educate and inspire you to have a nonprofit that will make a great community impact. Allow me to share a little about myself that lead me here. I’m a native of Jacksonville, FL. Married to my best friend Larry L. Burton, Jr. and the mother of four beautiful daughters: Tiffany (Travell), Takesha, Larea and Jalah and I’m the grandmother of two Tamia Elaine (My Bowl of Sunshine) and Traden Lamont (My LIL Prince). I enjoy being a wife, mother, grandmother, mentor and pioneer, with my husband, as we raise the bar of purpose for marriages, families, ministries and businesses. Being a founder of several programs, businesses and ministries give me additional strategies and an action plan to assist others to win.
LITTLE OF MY JOUNERY After the death of my mother at the age of four years old, I encountered molestation, rape, sexual addiction, traveled through several foster care homes, crime, drugs, mental illness, emotional and physical abuse. A brush with death and a face-to-face encounter with Jesus, reshaped my love for knowledge, thereby creating a pursuit of the truth about who God is and what He desires for our lives. I believe my personal and victorious are proof that the great power of God is still at work today. I was introduced to Community Development by participating in several community events over 22 years ago. Embodied with great passion and desire to make a Community Impact, I yearned to learn more in order to do more; with 20 plus years of Community Development experience, I have and continue to facilitate change to improve the performance of community and family-based organizations. I have worked with over 100 nonprofit organizations and foundations in organizational capacity building, board development, strategic planning, fundraising development, succession planning and governance. Raising millions of dollars to further the mission and capacity building of nonprofit organizations and community base programs.
