What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.
In the tapestry of my early years, my childhood was a canvas painted with curiosity and wonder. Growing up, my days were filled with exploration, fueled by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and a boundless imagination. I was raised by my mother and father who were both first generation college educated. I knew my path would be to go to college as well. My parents were firm believers in the power of education, especially for people of color. This was even more important being a black girl growing up in a predominantly white city.
I am the oldest of three children, so I’ve always been a natural leader and boss if you will. I’ve helped others for as long as I can remember and advocated for myself and people of color. Those initial chapters of my life were shaped by the nurturing environment of my family, who instilled values of resilience, compassion, and a love for continuous learning. Role models emerged not only from the pages of books but also from the everyday heroes within my family and community. My mother is one of the strongest, most confident women I know. My father is one of the most intelligent, generous, spiritual people that I know. I am a blend of them both. A dreamer who believes I can manifest anything my heart desires and helps others to do the same. This is why I believed in myself enough to venture into the path of the unknown, pursue my purpose and passion and help others to do the same. The essence of those childhood years remains alive in my pursuits, a testament to the enduring impact of a vibrant upbringing. Today, as I embark on new endeavors, the spirit of wonder and the lessons from those early days continue to guide me, infusing my journey with resilience, passion, and a commitment to making a meaningful impact on the world.

How has your life changed because of your initiative/venture?
Engaging in healing, coaching, and speaking work with clients and organizations has transformed my life in profound ways. Witnessing the incredible metamorphosis of individuals and the positive shifts within organizations has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. I love that everyday I wake up excited about my day and how I can add value to the world. I live with passion and purpose! Through this journey, I’ve learned that healing is not just a profession; it’s a reciprocal exchange of energy that elevates both the giver and the receiver. The impact of coaching goes beyond strategic guidance; it’s about unlocking untapped potential and witnessing the extraordinary resilience that resides within each person.
Speaking to diverse audiences has allowed me to connect with hearts and minds, creating ripples of change that extend far beyond the stage. The power of words to inspire, motivate, and catalyze transformation is a force that fuels my purpose. In the realm of organizations, facilitating change has become a testament to the ripple effect of personal growth on a collective scale. Witnessing teams evolve, communicate more authentically, and thrive together is the embodiment of my commitment to catalyzing positive change. This work isn’t just a profession—it’s a calling. It has reshaped my understanding of the human spirit’s capacity for growth, resilience, and boundless potential. Every session, every workshop, and every conversation is a step towards a world where empowered individuals and thriving organizations coexist.

Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity? OR Share a motivational message for the audience/women who are reading this.
I’m a firm believer in being the change that you want to see in the world. That you do not have the power to change others, but you can fully change yourself and thus change your family, community and the world around you. I envision a place where every woman, regardless of background or circumstance, stands boldly at the forefront of innovation and leadership. A world where your unique brilliance is not only recognized but celebrated; where your dreams are not just possibilities but powerful realities.
Ladies, as you embark on your entrepreneurial journey, remember this: Your potential is limitless, and your ability to create change knows no bounds. Let your passion be the driving force, your determination the guiding light, and your resilience the unwavering foundation. In my almost 20 years in business, Ive learned success lies in being unapologetically authentic. Embrace your individuality and let it shape the narrative of your success. The challenges you encounter are not obstacles but stepping stones, propelling you toward greatness if you allow them to be. I implore you to nurture not only your businesses but also your inner selves. Success is not just about external achievements but a reflection of the growth, courage, self awareness and self-love cultivated within. Self sabotage is a real phenomena that rears its ugly head if you do not do your inner work. It can destroy anything you create in your life, relationships and business. So, rise boldly, speak your truth, and keep moving forward. The world is ready for the transformative impact only you can bring. Are you ready to bring it?
