She has enjoyed creative writing since childhood, but her love of writing grew even stronger during her college years. “Dr. Rae” prides herself on being able to convey such “real” messages about the journey of love.

She is the founder and CEO of FYMP3, Free Your Mind Promotions, Productions, and Publications; currently completing an Ed.S., Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville; and is a full-time Love Coach specializing in the journey to self-love.
