I was born in our Nation’s Capital, Washington, D.C.
However, most of my rearing took place in South Boston, Virginia. My educational training came through the Halifax Co. School system where I graduated from Halifax County High School in 1995. I moved to N. Carolina in 1996 after graduating. After working with kids and community related jobs, I eventually obtained a degree in Human Services and am now completing a second degree in Social work from Walden University. I also have two wonderful, intelligent sons, Elijah Faulkner (19) and Mekhi Faulkner (11).
Throughout my life, I have been blessed to work jobs that have been community related. I have also served in a community development and restoration ministry capacity through my church organization, Apostolic Faith Churches of Deliverance for the past 20 plus years. This experience in conjunction with my degree and former social work related jobs has given me a passion for upgrading communities. The moral fabric of every community is the heart of its community leaders that will dare to envision a better surrounding.
I have a vision for a better community through producing and helping its citizens become better. I wasn’t born rich, so I am familiar with the importance of having a helping hand. I am now that helping hand.
I firmly believe that with the love and hope I have in my heart, I can bring my past experience and knowledge of managing group homes and assisted living facilities to help elevate Fifth Street Ministries to the next level.
