Prior to realization of her “divine purpose and calling” in the kingdom and the discovery of her ministry gifts, Apostle Sharon had professional career aspirations of being a businesswoman in Corporate America. In pursuit of her goals, she attended the University of Illinois Circle Campus and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing. Upon entering the work force, Apostle Sharon was immediately recognized as a leader, a woman with an excellent work ethic and a strong mind for business, however, God had other plans for her and that was to build His Kingdom, not Corporate America. This was even more evident to Apostle Sharon after she received power through the baptism of the Holy Ghost and her life began to suddenly change as she moved in the direction of her divine calling and purpose. After responding to the voice of God she left her “secular job” on Valentine’s Day over 15 years ago and chose to trust the call of God on her life along with its purpose to lead her into greener pastures and her destined work assignments.

As a Visionary, who can envision the plans of God she was given a Divine vision in 2013 coupled with a prophetic word from her now husband, of her being an “uncommon mentor”, and after incubating that vision for five years in 2018 she birthed out Woman To Woman Covenant Connection International, with the first leg of this venture being a Mentorship Program being established, She currently mentors women in four areas of their choosing (Womanhood, Women’s Ministry, Leadership and the Apostolic). Her mentees include Pastors, First Ladies, Ministers, Aspiring as well as affirmed Apostles. This is in line with her purpose in life to be the “standard of holiness” for women. Because she understands the heart of a woman she is anointed by God to bring about healing and restoration in the lives of women. She is the Founder/President of Sweet Rose of Sharon Women’s Ministry, a place of feeding, a place to prepare for excellence & a place of healing and restoration.
