The Mission For My Life Is...

To inspire and enhance the lives of all with who I come in contact. From a smile to a purposeful conversation. To absorb and learn from my surroundings to grow to be the best version of myself through my gifts and talents. 


My parents Nettie Mae and Kenneth Athy and I have one sibling Dawn who is 3 years younger than me. I grow up in the intercity of Philadelpia another term for the Ghetto. Graduated from Central high school and attended Hampton University where I received a BS in Mathematics. Graduated and moved to Charlotte NC where I did not know anyone to work for the number 2 computer company in the world Digital Equipment Corporation. Eight years later closed my whole department and I moved to Atlanta GA to work for Georgia Pacific's IT department for Building Products. Three years later I then transitioned to IBM where most of my career was project management. I tapped on the shoulder and give a choice to find another position in IBM or that the package. I prayed and decided to take the package and go to real estate school. I launched my Real Estate career in 2004. It gave me the opportunity to make as much money as I wanted to, spend time at my children's school as the PTSA president for 4 years and Student Government Council, make tons of new relationships, and time to travel. My business really took off when I hire a coach in my14th year of real estate. I am preparing for my exit of real estate in 5 yrs, to live my best life educating young adults on financial literacy.
