In 2014 FIES was rebranded to First Impressions Events & Entertainment, LLC which specializes in artist curation and management. One of my proudest accomplishments to date was being scouted by bass player Mr. International, and Detroit’s own Ralphe Armstrong to be his manager, whose first CD project Home Bass has been nominated for a Grammy. Other artists that FIEE represents are Gayelynn McKinney, drummer for the McKinney Zone and the all-female jazz band Straight Ahead, jazz singer Sky Covington and The New Fantastic Four.

Fast forward to high school where I developed a love for business. Everything business from the management of systems to the management of people. This led me to pursue my undergraduate degree in business management with a concentration in human resources where I quickly excelled. My role as a human resources professional afforded me the opportunity to hone my business management skills in numerous industries. During my leadership tenure with one of the nation’s leading learning associations for Human Resources development, I was instrumental in streamlining logistics for the associations 700+ members. From this, First Impressions Events & Services, LLC was birthed in 2010 which specialized in planning meetings, workshops and special events for a variety of clients including the booking of musical entertainment.
