Through The Greatest You Consulting, we will help positively empower and transform individuals, organizations and communities to become the best version of themselves. As a first generation woman of color, my goal is to move low income communities out of poverty by helping clients to enhance and grow their talents and connect them with resources in the education world, business world, workforce, and community. As we grow, we will be able to train other young leaders to support our mission and give them entrepreneurial skills. We will also run evening and weekend workshops to accommodate schedules and offer scholarships so everyone can have access to coaching.
