This Is My Story

An African American woman born and raised in Robeson county. I went to a title one school. There were always opportunities for some academics but they were not anywhere near us or sports which….was not my best attribute. I knew I wanted to be in the nurse field after overly enjoying Dr. Quinn medicine woman, touched by an angel, TLC medical shows etc.
I never really got a chance to understand what nursing really was nor its pros and cons before getting into the profession. Now, let me backtrack to say, my mom is a nurse and my dad a barber. My dad did strongly encourage me to become a nurse like my mom, but my hardheaded self just wanted to get out the house. I will save that story for another day.
My mission is to provide the opportunity for youth seeking guidance in the nursing field. I want to encourage and make them aware of the vast pros that nursing can provide them.

Our History

The Bee’s Knees nonprofit derived from a nurse with a dream to be an influence to those who are interested in being an entrepreneur, but lack the opportunity and resources to approach starting up.  My passion as the owner is to assist the youth in finding their interest and cultivating ways to make it monetary income.    

The Bee in the logo represents the system and symbolizes the role that they all play in a functional system.  Our focus is on training the youth NOW about their relevance in the world.  The youth ARE IMPORTANT!  THEY are our future!  

The lotus flower represents life.  The lotus flower seed can lay dormant in muddy waters for over a thousand years, then when the setting is just right they root from the lake bottom and bloom on the surface of the water.  We all have talents, hopes and dreams, and it may take a while for a combination of the right setting to produce that win.  Our goal is to create the environment conducive to students making their hope and dreams attainable through training in soft and transferable skills.
