I’m 30 years old, a believer in Jesus, and an avid NBA fan. When people ask me where I’m from, I like to respond by saying I have 3 stages of development! I am proud to say I was born to Haitian parents and spent most of my elementary school years living
there. This helps me offset the often misplaced “spoiled” label people automatically assume when they learn I am an only child.
My middle school years and half of high school were spent in living in southwest Florida where I developed my love for basketball and also where I began to craft my skills of being quick witted. This was a survival skill I NEEDED for my first two years of high school. I remember one kid rhetorically asked me “are you wearing your little brother’s t-shirt.” I completed my last two years of high school, college (Bachelors in psychology), and graduate school (Master of Occupational Therapy) in Massachusetts. I have no idea how I survived there for 10 years because I HATE the cold! I now live in Georgia with my beautiful wife where I practice as a Certified Hand Therapist helping to rehabilitate individuals with injuries/conditions affecting their upper extremities.


     I am 28 years old, originally from Chicago, Illinois and moved to Atlanta in 2014 for nursing school at Emory University. Many people do not know this about me, but I love sports! I have been an athlete for most of my life and even played 4 years of college basketball at Beloit College in Wisconsin. Another fun fact about me is that I enjoy traveling and have currently visited 10 countries. My husband and I met in 2014 and we got married on June 30, 2017. I am a firm believer in Jesus and I love children! I serve as a Sunday school teacher to 3-5 year old children at my local church and work as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.


We are two young professionals who decided to challenge the status quo that “debt is normal.” We did not want to live with the burden of debt knowing the negative impact it has on the lives of many across the world. We did not want to accept paying thousands of dollars in interest payments, making the lending institutions richer with each payment. We knew if we shared our story, we could be a beacon of hope to those who felt overwhelmed by their debt and/or did not see a way out. This is when Freedom Is A Choice Movement was birthed. This Movement exists to inspire everyone, everywhere to CHOOSE freedom from debt. This will be accomplished primarily in 3 ways: 1. Via our Freedom Meter where you can track your debt payoff goals and have a visual reminder of your goals and progress 2. Via our book on “How to get out of debt” (currently in progress) 3. Via apparel which is the lifestyle component of the brand used for self expression of the journey. This is our call to action to you. Make the choice today, however big or small, to make the changes necessary to pay off your debt and stay out of debt. Freedom is calling. Can you hear it? Join the movement.
