Prior to that I worked at Family and Children's Services with the Mental Health Court Docket for a year and a half.

In 1995 she moved her family to Phoenix, AZ and joined Keep the Peace World Ministries where she volunteered in the outreach ministry serving the impoverished and under served population of the community and pursuing her educational goals. 

In 2005, Hope returned to Tulsa and continued pursuing her educational goals and earned a Bachelor of Science in Human Services and Management from the University of Phoenix.

 Immediately upon graduation in 2008 she was hired by OKDHS and served as a Social Service Specialist, determining eligibility for TANF, SNAP, Medicaid, and Daycare benefits. After working there for several years Hope realized that she wanted to make a greater impact on the lives of the people she served and decided to go back to school to pursue a Master’s degree in social work. In 2014 Hope earned her Master of Social Work degree at the University of Oklahoma in Tulsa and now works as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/therapist.

Through Family and Children’s Services, Hope has had training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Structural Family Therapy. Hope works predominantly with children and their families and also adults and elderly who are challenged with trauma, anxiety, depression, anger management and poor social skills.  

Hope’s life story was published in the International Handbook of Adolescent Pregnancy in 2014, sharing her challenges and triumphs as a teenaged mother. She later became a volunteer for Martha’s Foundation (a transitional housing program for pregnant and parenting teenagers) in 2016 where she also serves as a board member. 

Hope has 2 sons. Travis, her eldest, who is married with 2 children, and Talib, her youngest, who is still in grade school. Hope continues her legacy through her children and grandchildren by teaching them the value of education and virtue of community service.
