I’m a graduate of Southern IL University-Carbondale w a Bachelor’s in English, a woman of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., a mentor w Big Brothers Big Sisters, a recording artist, and a hair product/mimosa/Starbucks junkie, to name a few! My eternal occupation is CEO of my PR Firm PRbyELLE77: “thELLEffect”, which specializes in all things relative to social media. My company was founded on the principle of making life a little bit easier for the busy business, in need of a social media presence! For more information on what PRbyELLE77 can do for you, please email us at PRbyELLE77@gmail.com and we will respond to you within 24 hours, if not sooner!

I am most passionate about family, love, writing, encouraging others, being a successful young business owner, volunteering my time, and singing. It is a beautiful thing when you can wake up every morning and be blessed enough to do the things that you love. Thanks for reading! It’s been my pleasure!
