"I am the proud daughter of an immigrant turned entrepreneur from a small island called Grenada, and a military brat who continues to serve as an unparalleled example of how women can be both businesswomen and nurtures for their families.

Loreal's Story

A Passion for Service


“I believe all people, regardless of race, creed, color, gender, or sexual identification, should be treated equally. I believe in the words eloquently penned in the Declaration of Independence, that ‘all men are created equal, that there are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights, that among those are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ I believe now is the time for us to get back to that basic premise that we’ve seemingly deviated from, and insist that all men and women have equal access to the law, quality health care, quality education, and safe homes to raise their children.”
