Hometown: Montgomery, Louisiana

"I am a single mother of two and an entrepreneur. My oldest child passed away in 2006 from the effects of bone cancer. I raised my son alone, and when I see Miss Robbie, the show [Welcome to Sweetie Pie's] continues to give me hope that I too will succeed. I have been baking since I was a teenager, and I'm introducing my dry ingredients to make the perfect sweet potato pie. I have the product in the local fresh market."

What is your favorite OWN show?
Welcome to Sweetie Pie's.

What is the one thing you can't live without, and why?
I can't live without the Lord and Savior Messiah, Jesus. I read his word, and it keeps me grounded with love, hope, charity and peace. If it were not for his word after my daughter and best friend passed away, I would have lost my mind. His word kept me sane, realizing that I still had work to do here on this earth and that her work was complete.

What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
Play Candy Crush or Pet Rescue and read the Bible.

What are your three favorite things?
God, family and making money.

What are you proudest of?
I was a very proud mama when my oldest child, the first on my father's side of the family, received her college degree.

What do you like that most people dislike?
I don't know. I like helping people who have fallen or messed up in life and need a second chance, who need someone to trust in them and install a positive attitude.
