I was blessed  when  I met Ann Turner and she introduced me to the amazing group of women that we now know Pa Professional Image Alliance. I met Ann at one of the lowest points in my career. My business was shut down due to COVID 19 restrictions and I had no hope, but Miss Ann as she is affectionately known  and the rest of the phenomenal team helped me to keep hope alive!! Together we fought for funding for the black and brown businesses that were overlooked by everyone else!! We were awarded collectively well over          . Without PPIA I know I would've went out of business during the shutdown.

I met Ann Turner during COVID while working for a summer youth employment program.  Since the governor mandated the closing of salons and barbershops the job came at the perfect time.  Ms Ann invited me to be a part of PPIA and I humbly accepted.  Without this group I would not have received grants and other opportunities that have allowed me to reopen and sustain my business of 24 years
