She is the Sisterlock consultant behind the mobile natural hair care service, Sisterlocdnlove.  She and her daughter Mya are partners in their Paparazzi Jewelry business, Chevelle is also a consultant for a health and wellness product, Though she’s in Network Marketing, it’s Chevelle’s Christ-centered motivational speaking and one on one sessions that set her apart from others.

She is a born leader and loves to train others. As a phlebotomist, she became certified to be an instructor in hopes of starting a school for people who were intimidated by college but wanted a fulfilling career.

She believes that this desire was God-given and preparation for this very moment. Chevelle sums up her love story of foster care to adoption with one phrase, “My heart made me a mom.” She openly shares her journey of caring for her biological 3rd cousins who each came to her as infants.
