She is also the owner of a private practice, which offers competent and relevant counseling and biblical guidance to empower, edify, and encourage healing to clients that will allow them to take control of their destinies and function productively.
As you can see (hair and septum piercing), she is a little quirky! She is a lover of all people, fashion, shoes, and cute puppies. In her spare time, she likes to read, color, DIY, do arts and crafts, eat, sleep, travel, and spend time with her friends and family. She grew up as a military brat (Army), so she has been afforded the opportunity to travel the world and experience a lot. She credits her ability to be adaptable to this. Chari is passionate about making sure everyone has the right to consideration, safety, and respect without discrimination as to race, ethnicity, color, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, or national origin.
