Darlene's Story 
     As a young child Darlene knew that she wanted to help others. She was always that go to child and was always willing to listen and help where and when she could. As life moved forward, Darlene was faced with several challenges that should have slowed her down or even knocked her out, but Darlene was determined not to give up. At the age of 17, just two weeks before her high school graduation, she lost her mother to breast cancer. This occurred after years of her witnessing her mother be a constant victim of domestic violence. Her father, which was in the home, was an alcoholic who caused turmoil in the house for all of her childhood. She also experienced a horrible life shattering divorce after a 15 year relationship, this caused major financial issues for her. She later remarried, after a three year healing process, only to lose her husband to cancer two years after the marriage leaving her with two small children, age five and nine months old. ​​​

     After years of heartbreak and disappointment, Darlene did not just throw in the towel, instead she did the opposite. She decided to do what she believes is her purpose and life calling, motivating and inspiring others to never give up. Darlene fought through the pain and heartache and told her story in her book called, "Overcoming the Obstacles, Releasing the Winner in You." This book propelled her to share her story to audiences and encourage others as a keynote speaker for conferences and retreats. She has donated portions of her book proceeds to the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Woman with the intent to help others who have gone through this horrific experience. 
   Darlene is the author of three books,"Overcoming The Obstacles.," "Win-Ability," and "You Are, Just Believe It!"  She has co-authored two additional books, Getting Well: Mind, Body & Spirit, writing a chapter titled, "The Healing Heart" released March 2013 and The Young Professional Woman, writing " Persistence & Perseverance." 

     Darlene is determined to make a difference in the lives of others. Her zeal for helping and exalting people is a God given gift and has been a driving force in her life. This is evident in the way that she touches lives through her messages.
