Sylvia has been an employee at E.I. DuPont for 19 years as a Physical Testing Lab Technician. Additionally, I am the Business Administrator for Wall2Wall Remodeling & Repair LLC. Sylvia is Blessed to be married to her husband, Tyrus, for 29 years and counting! Although she has no biological children Sylvia is fortunate to be called Godmother by many. In 2004, The Ladies of Elegance, Inc. was birthed out of a desire to promote the importance of annual health screenings and encourage those diagnosed with cancer and sickle cell disease. Always a social butterfly, she was raised to treat people the way she would want to be treated. During her free time, Sylvia enjoys shopping, performing group workouts, traveling, spending time with family & friends and relaxing. Sylvia wanted to develop an organization that would be a blessing to the community. Although we may not be able to help or save everyone if we can help or save one or two along the way, it's all worth it!
Sylvia's motto is "Let's Do It Right Or Not At All"
