The in-depth article delves into the heart of Spark's mission to empower underserved entrepreneurs and transform our community through innovation, education, and support. The article shares some of my story and passion for the work we do and the incredible impact our programs have had on the lives of aspiring business owners in Thomasville.


From our intensive 12-week entrepreneurship training to our ongoing mentorship and resources, the article showcases the comprehensive approach Spark takes to help our adult and teen entrepreneurs turn their dreams into thriving realities. It also highlights the dedication of our volunteers, coaches, and supporters who make this transformative work possible.

If you haven't had a chance to read the article yet, I highly recommend picking up a copy of THOM Magazine's Spring edition. It's a beautiful and inspiring look at the heart of Spark Thomasville and the incredible individuals who make our mission a reality. You can see the online version HERE.

And a big thanks to my biggest cheerleader, my husband Earl. Together, we are sparking change, empowerment, and opportunity in Thomasville - one entrepreneur at a time.

I am grateful for you,
