Let me start by saying, "you're not crazy" for feeling this way - especially if these feelings seem to intensify after you leave most work meetings, or get in your car after a day of work, right before you go to bed, and especially on Sunday night.
Here’s the truth: Your discontent is really your soul telling you there is more for you, encouraging you to speak up for yourself once and for all, and to identify your true calling.
One example of this was I almost didn’t marry the love of my life, my husband, just because he was White. After years of dating, I finally married this amazing man. It hasn’t always been easy, but it certainly has been worth all of the 25 years that we’ve been married. We have two amazing, beautiful adult children.
Over the years, these hidden barriers have shown up causing me to question my abilities as an entrepreneur, as a mother, as a wife, and as a friend. When George Floyd was murdered, I suffered the deepest depression and severe anxiety. Yet, this became my greatest learning and growth.
Because of my persistent faith in God, my commitment to my spiritual, mental, and physical wellness, continuing to attend several personal and professional development events, having a business coach, and my insatiable desire to read, learn and grow, I realize my deep calling and mission.

Here’s what we know, you NEED to work with us.
In fact, our WORLD needs you to work with us. Here’s why.
It will take 136 years for women to experience the same equity as men. That number increased by 36 years after the pandemic.
Far too often, we still disproportionately see white males in the position with the most power in organizations, schools, nonprofits, and even entrepreneurial fields of personal development.
With the onset of the social justice movements, like #MeToo, systemic racism, and a worldwide pandemic, it’s as if a spotlight has been blasted on the inequities that exist in our world, that points right to the very gifts that each one of us has to solve these problems.
WE NEED a community of like-minded elevation growth leaders working together to support one another with real conversations about how to say NO to unjust systems, and the courage to CHANGE it, once and for all.
We need Rise Advocates® rallying for diversity, equity, inclusion, empathy, respect, social and emotional learning, trauma-informed care, mental health and social services, self-care, justice, within their business, careers, and in their schools and educational systems.
We need confident women leading with a growth and healing mindset, and helping other young women along the way.
