I truly believe things happen for a reason. After 15 years working in higher education, I unexpectedly lost my job. I felt helpless, hopeless, and rejected. Nine months later I had a new job, which provided flexibility to try new things. My sorority sister encouraged me to attend a model call, let led to one opportunity to another. Never would I have imagined I would grace the runway, be published in magazines, compete in beauty pageants (and win!), create a blog, and most importantly, become a body positive advocate. I still can’t believe it!

“The Curvy Doc” was conceived in the bathroom (I lot of my deep thoughts take place there). I was looking for a catchy name that described me fully. I originally used the name for my blog on another site, but decided to expand the brand to include not just blogging but modeling, public speaking; just to name a few.

I look forward to further sharing my story of a woman who hated herself up until 2015 to a woman who has blossomed into a queen that can’t be stopped. There’s more to come so stay tuned!
