Born and raised in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, Dr. Powell earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Hampton University, a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology at Bowie State University, and a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University.

Dr. Powell was blessed to have grown up in a Christian household with strong religious beliefs and practices. If you ask her, she would say, “I had a praying grandmother who instilled praying in my parents, who then instilled it in me.” She made a personal profession of faith during her high school years and since then has been diligently growing spiritually. Dt. Powell has a strong belief that through God, all things are possible for those who believe and love Him. She further believes that God uses her to be a blessing to others, and she embraces that calling as she strives each day to be more of a blessing to Him and to all of His people.

Dr. Powell is a current member of the Mt Ennon Baptist Church and has been worshiping and serving there for over 25 years. Over the years she has served in a variety of capacities, but her current ministry activities include working in the Youth and the Music and Arts Departments.
