Jeanelle M. Lanham is an Indiana native now residing in North Phoenix Arizona. She is an only child, who was challenged with being teased by family and friends because she is so different! She thinks differently and behaves differently than most and it made her an easy target. By the age of 6, Jeanelle Marshawn was told that "when bad things happen around her was her fault" this caused her to battle with depression. Her mind was being tormented daily; she'd have negative thoughts and had to learn to get them under control and she did!

In high school, Jeanelle graduated with the dream of changing the world for future teens. During her junior year in high school she took the required test(s) needed to join the Army and was one of the few selected to join before she was even allowed to go to basic training. This was an honor for her as she served during the Dessert Storm/Golf War: While there she received the discipline needed to start Iron WoMan Inc® and the nonprofit Hodge Podge® - the teen cafe. Being the mother of two teenage young men and volunteering for and working with churches, schools, and in her community, she saw a need for teenagers to have a place to call their own, a place where they can feel safe to be themselves and dedicated herself to creating such a place.

Dr. Jeanelle, the Founder of Hodge Podge®, attended Georgia State for Child Psychology as well as Social Services; while there she volunteered for the Emory Clinic for Families that have Children challenged with Asthma to better her involvement with teens and their families. Jeanelle is a Published Author, Certified Teen Life Coach as well as a Certified/Licensed Yoga Practitioner. She has a love of writing, creativity, the arts, and counseling others helping them find their full potential to be the best. Afterwards she received her Doctorate in Counseling and every day she continues to get educated on what teens need and want. Jeanelle is dedicated to teaching teenagers the power they have within to change their lives, the lives around them ultimately changing the world around them.

Aunt Delta Dawn Host of “Bullies On Blast”, Voice America Variety Radio began this show as a method to self heal as well as to help others "BULLIED" in the Workplace heal and expose their TRUTHS of what gets covered up by corrupt Corporations and Governments that have the Gold and the evil network (Fear Factor Fraud Squad) to conceal the wickedest, dirtiest crimes.


After 25+ years as a Professional, never having been fired but all of a sudden found herself RIFed and "blackballed" from employment for NO reason other than a vicious personal vendetta by a mean gene JeffCrow. The intense, pain, depression, hopelessness and despair had her thinking thoughts she never imagined possible. She sought help, relief, and comfort from many avenues to NO avail.

The powerful punch of a Corporation will make the best have a fleeting moment of WRONG thoughts. Her mantra when one encounters Bullycide, say no to homicide and suicide but yes to “TRUICIDE” AT ALL COSTS.

Her 5 year to date intensely painful journey (Lies, Set Ups, rogue Agents, Deceivers, HIPAA breach etc...) is enough to make one think, she stole money from the mob or drugs from a drug cartel. The infinite attempts to ruin her professionally, physically, mentally, emotionally has been life altering, but she is determined to put TRUTH to power to voice with a passionate, persistent FAITH that God has not brought her this far to leave her.

She is determined to Praise in the Valley just as she praised when she was on a mountain peak. She is willing to be the sacrificial lamb if it will save just one soul from a beastly brutal viper JeffCrow in a suit that callously, deliberately and intentionally ruins lives/livelihoods JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN.

Tamara A. Marbury, lawyer by day and blogger by night. Her blog, Blitzandglam.com, is where she writes about her two passions: football and fashion. Tamara realized that there are so many women out there who love football and also love fashion. The female football isn't just the stereotypical guy's gal in jeans, sneakers, and a one size fits all jersey going to the game with the guys. The female football fan is the chic sophisticate professional, the haute couture fashionista, and the everyday woman who just loves fashion and loves to shop. With her blog, she wants to bring the topics that we are interested in to the forefront while displaying her own style and personality that I hope women will love. You can follow Attorney Tamara A.
