Whether your passion is helping others, providing a service, or selling a great product; I want to help!  Every great relationship starts with getting to know each other, so here's some information about me.

I'm a native of Virginia and currently live in North Carolina on the traditional territory of the Tuscaraora (Skaruhreh) people.  I've had the opportunity to live in four other states, which means I've seen a lot of cool places and met a lot of great people.

I have a B.A. in English from Hampton University and a M.S. Ed. with an emphasis in Sports Management from Old Dominion University.  Most of my professional career has been spent in the education and nonprofit sectors.

My biggest strengths are organization, communication, planning, and administration.  I love to help and encourage people, and I get my warm and fuzzies from seeing others reach their goals.

I'm married to a handsome, hardworking man of faith; and, we have two awesome, and equally good looking, boys.  In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, nature walks, playing in waterfalls, trying new restaurants, and watching movies.

Feel free to visit my LinkedIn page to learn more about me.

"Jamala has been a tremendous asset to Upendo Fellowship. She is personable and patient.  Her calm and thoughtfulness make brainstorming and deliberating with her highly constructive.  She is realistic and communicates that with sincerity. I am impressed with her professionalism in her timely execution and in all other aspects of her work.  Especially during the initial phase of the podcast project, I realized she is a highly organized person as well as a strong thinker and planner with very useful research skills."

"When you seek a virtual assistant, it's important to trust this person and know they are going to treat the project for your business with care and dedication like you would. Jamala is that person. She was able to take my big picture, vague at times, and turn it into an amazing website. She was patient, giving examples and suggestions to visually assist me with making decisions. She constantly stayed in touch, scheduled meetings, and even took the lead when I said just do what you do. Jamala is the best! Looking forward to working together on more projects for my businesses!"
