Who I am

Tech Lover | Solo Sushi Dates | International Traveler | Textbook Aquarius | Lifelong Learner

You can catch me in a coffee shop sipping on my hot matcha latte with macadamia nut milk and vibing out to lo-fi/chill beats all while trying to master the latest tech platform or app.

I've lived in 4 different states within 10 years and used the time during the pandemic to permanently leave my 9-5 and pursue a life I love.


I'm a Gen X mom raising a Gen Alpha kid! I want to leave a legacy for my son and the generations that come after him. I love sharing the wisdom that I've gained along my journey of running two businesses - SummerSaid and Field & Ford.

I share more about the lessons learned along this motherhood and entrepreneurship journey in my newsletter. I started this journey waaaaaay back in the early 2000s and I have no plans of slowing down any time soon.

  • Executive Assistant | Project Manager (2004- present)
  • Registered Respiratory Therapist (2015-present)
  • Founded SummerSaid (2018)
  • C0-Founded Field & Ford (2020)
  • Licensed Life, Accident, Health Insurance Agent (2020-present)
  • Remote Professional (2020-present)


With almost 20 years of supporting executive level leaders in the nonprofit and higher education space combined with my degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Computer Information Systems, I've leveraged my professional experience and my love for technology to serve my clients as a Remote Project Manager and Trainer. I started SummerSaid to share my project management expertise and soon realized the demand was overwhelming. This in turn gave me the motivation to start training assistants on how to operate as project managers while incorporating the soft skills of leadership, self awareness, and emotional intelligence.

I currently run two businesses. SummerSaid is where I work with consultants and corporate leaders to professionally develop their assistants through my program The A.T.O.M.I.C. Assistant Accelerator. I also co-founded Field & Ford where we train individuals to pivot from their 9-5 to remote professionals through our two proprietary programs.

SummerSaid is a minority woman owned agency established in 2018 and headquartered in New Orleans, Lousiana. We train assistants through private professional development with a focus on project management, behavioral analysis, and leadership development. We also provide remote project management services to small businesses and nonprofits.

Private Professional Development for Assistants

I train assistants to operate like project managers and develop their leadership within lean teams.


Founded in 2020, Field & Ford LLC is a boutique consulting firm that provides professional development and business skills training for remote professionals and established entrepreneurs through our proprietary programs - Building Your Blueprint and Pathway to Pivot. We also provide executive level consulting and strategic planning services.
