The Tea on Dree
I was born in Rochester, New York, went to college at North Carolina Central University, and received a Bachelor’s in Accounting. Completely underwhelmed and overstressed by the corporate structure I decided to look for other healthier alternatives to use my talents. Along the journey of reinventing myself, I found out that I had two sizable uterine fibroids. While my curiosity had already been peaked by plant based diet foodstyle to pursue a healthier lifestyle, having fibroids made me a lot more disciplined in my approach.

All in all I’m your around-the-way girl. I love shopping, basketball games, and indy films. I’m a love junkie and I enjoy listening to wide range of lectures, interviews and webisodes on YouTube. I’m currently fixated on a music group called Black Coffee.
