I am Master G, It took 38-impactful years to earn this title! I share this significant rank with less than 12 female Masters Internationally. "Master": having or showing great skill or proficiency.  This monumental milestone marked the first half of my life, welcome to the second half...


I am a Certified International Instructor with over 40 years taekwondo expertise. I reside in beautiful Longwood, FL with my husband and four children. My life's passion is empowering others through authentic taekwondo and self-defense. My  journey is more than martial arts; it's a testament to resilience and transformation. At age 12, I lost my Father to gun violence, he was 36 years old when his life was abruptly cut short.  His case was never resolved. By age 50, I experienced far more acts of violence and aggression, and learned a violent crime is committed every 25.6 seconds in the United States.  This astonishing information on such an important topic, paired with my journey, passion, and faith led to the genesis of A Charity Empowered to Save Souls. received IRS 501(c)(3) status 11/02/2021. Over 2,500 individuals where positively impacted in the first 14 months!  This is not a one-woman show; our dedicated member-athletes, volunteers and local businesses play a crucial role in framing and mobilizing our impact today.  Take a look at how it all began, and join us on this transformative journey.
