Greetings, I have over 15 yrs experience as a journalist. I started my career on the Assignment Desk in Tallahassee at ABC WTXL. From he Desk I was promoted to Desk Manager, then Assistant News Director. My greatest achievement was forming the WTXL, FAMU/ FSU Internship program. Under my watch, over 30 interns became journalists.. I worked for the station for 5 years and decided to advance my career, so off to a bigger market, Tampa.
I have worked for the only 24 hour news station in Tampa, Bay News 9 for the past 7 years as the weekend planner. I created the coverage plan for weekend newscasts, managed liveshot locations, provided content for the newscasts and our digital department, managed the assignment desk, and supervised news crews. After 15 years, I had enough news and needed a rewarding career where I helped lift others. In February I created a nonprofit, Social Lee Media. It’s the only nonprofit organization created to connect the community to the media. I host Free Mini Media Masters Courses where I teach the community how to communicate with the media. I also have a medical marijuana health blog, where I share my experience with Medical Marijuana. I write for Royaltee Magazine. The Spring Edition was just released, and I wrote 2 stories for the release. In addition am currently working towards certification to be. Postpartum Doula. The CDC called for a state of emergency for pregnant women of color because we are dying during and after childbirth at rates higher than 3rd world countries 4X and in New York, it’s 12X. I want to stop these senseless deaths by offering support and education for the new mom and babies of women who may otherwise have gone without lifesaving information.
