    Before joining RPS, Dr. MJ served as a Speech Pathologist and Audiologist for Durham City Schools, Warren County Public Schools and Baltimore City Schools. In Baltimore City Schools, she also taught 9th Grade English.

    Dr. MJ earned her bachelor’s degree from Hampton Institute (now Hampton University), master’s degrees from Towson State University, Jones International University, Richmond Virginia Seminary, and her doctorate from Piedmont Theological Seminary.  She is currently enrolled at Liberty University and will graduate in May with a degree in Human Service Counseling with a focus in Crisis, Trauma and Disaster Care.  I was motivated to return to school to develop the ability to meet the critical need of providing effective trauma informed care to our children and their families as society faces more and more trauma related events.
