Ebony is a woman that encourages self-love, financial literacy, and spiritual growth. Her mission is to uplift people living in under-serviced communities, and let them know their current circumstances don't have to determine their futures. Both Ebony and her husband Tory had to overcome many obstacles while growing up in Saginaw, MI, but their faith and determination helped two young people from poverty stricken beginnings and very little support develop into strong, educated, financially secure adults.
Ebony is the survivor of a childhood filled with instability. At a young age she was forced to live with her grandmother due to her mother’s inability to care for her. Battling mental illness, her mother was in abusive relationships that often spilled over to Ebony and her siblings. After living with her grandmother for awhile she was removed by child protective services and placed into foster care. Ebony utilized her spirituality to get her through those hard times even at a young age.
Inspired by her struggles and triumphs she wrote her first in a series of books entitled Inside the Locker Room: A Journey of Faith and the Power of Prayer. She pulls from her childhood experiences and the topsy turvy world of professional athletes and encourages people to stand strong.
Ebony is the mother of 4, and a graduate of Central Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (Biology Minor & Pre Med Concentration), she also graduated from Michigan State University’s Accelerated Nursing Options program where she completed a 4 yr program in 12 months and became a licensed registered nurse with a concentration in geriatric care and provision, and commercial development and planning. She is also the founder of Caritas Adult Day Services, and Explosion Publishing and Press.
