And there’s more. Along with the Joyner pitch, she hosts a marvelous, Monday Morning Motivational Call – “BEING YOUR BEST,” where they’ve coined the inspirational term “Your Monday Morning Dose of Verbal Caffiene”.
Though she’s accomplished and achieved quite a lot over the last 26 years, her greatest joy is the love of her life and husband of 26 years, Ray; her three sons, Charles, Naeem, and Jabril; and her three grandchildren, Amani, Aliah and Jaxson. Nothing compares to her family.
