JC is also a mentor and writing coach as an instructor with the nonprofit organization Youth Writer’s Rock, coaching and guiding youth as they become published authors. The first product went on to also become an Amazon bestseller and an award winning short film.
JC was a closet writer for many years due to a devastating blow in her past that silenced her creativity and almost derailed her God-given gift of being an entertainer and storyteller through the written word. After a phenomenal, spiritual breakthrough, it was clear that what God has placed in your heart, no one can take away. She is a natural born writer; it is infused in her D.N.A. and believes everyone’s D.N.A. makes them Deliberately Not Average! After years of living in a cloud of self-doubt and fear of rejection, she uses her platform as a Transformational Speaker to serve women who are ready to discover their destiny and live up to their fullest potential. Using real life examples, faith and humor, she provides them with guidance, strategies, inspiration, and accountability to win big!
JC is a manager at an international nonprofit. She has been married for over 30 years, with two successful grown children.
