Chic Sims (l.) and Attorneymom (r.)
It is being reported that my beloved New Orleans sister and PR Mogul, ChiQ Simms, passed away suddenly today from a brain aneurysm.
I started following ChiQ on twitter at @GoddessofPR and we finally met in person earlier this year as she kicked off her Navigation Foundation, which I served as a board member.
I also had the opportunity to interview her twice on Character Corner Radio on www.blogtalkradio.com:
Original Air Date: May 30, 2010
PR IS MY BUSINESS WITH CHIQ (DIVAdend Entertainment)
Original Air Date: November 03, 2010
THE NAVIGATION FOUNDATION: HEALING OUR WORLD THROUGH MENTORSHIP
I am distraught. I will truly miss ChiQ. I am totally shocked over her death. The world had lost a very talented you lady.
