Her first book entitled “Yeah, I P.O.G.A.D. – don’t you?” was released in 2001 and she released her first CD “Doubly Graced” in 2009. She has a passionate desire to see others walk in their purpose and makes the time to help them ‘edit’ their lives so as to embrace F.E.A.R. out of their lives.
She often says she could be a professional student because of her inclination to continue learning and the importance education has played in her life. Her personal prayer is ‘to remain humble and teachable’ and believes that what you don’t know, can hurt you. Gwen has two Associates degrees – Business Administration and Graphic Design; a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with plans to pursue her Masters. In June 2015, she received her certification as a John Maxwell Leadership Coach/Trainer/Speaker and is intentionally purposed to ‘Grow Leaders’.

SMI allows Gwen to fulfill her ministry assignment of assisting the Kingdom of God with ‘artistic words’ via dVyne dTaels, the graphic design branch; with ‘published words’ via Monroe House Publishing, the publishing branch; and with ‘spoken words’ via Care2Share, the teaching platform from which she shares God’s Revelations 4 Kingdom Living.
ELE enables her to fulfill her enthusiasm to serve others in finding and walking in their purpose successfully. ELE focuses on leadership sustainment; enhanced communications confidence and soft skills empowerment. ELE employs Gwen as a certified John Maxwell Leadership Coach/Trainer/Speaker and is defined by a threefold mission (the WHY). One – to nurture the leader within students before they are convinced they are just a follower; Two – to enhance the leader within the education to increase relational and effectiveness; and Three – offer professional development to assist corporate/the entrepreneur in refining the leader within to complement their R.E.A.L. (R.elevant E.couraging A.cknowledging L.iquid) skills. ELE’s vision (the HOW) utilizes ‘treasure filled’ webinars/seminars, ‘wisdom inspired’ conferences, ‘thought provoking’ Lunch and Learns and ‘out the box’ Mastermind groups which are strategically and custom designed to meet the need of each client. These processes will propel ELE to become a household choice for those wanting to ‘edit’ their life. The ‘HOW’ may change to remain R.E.A.L.; but our ‘WHY’ will remain constant!

She passionately serves as an intercessor, worshipper and teacher at her local church and exercises her faith while teaching at various conferences/crusades as an modern day epistle, read of many throughout the country.
