An Idea is Born
Women of Wisdom was birthed out of a passion to see teen girls and young women make better choices and decisions to improve their everyday lifestyle and pursue their dreams.
Being someone who made poor choices in my early years, I've learned that wisdom and confidence are vitally important and need to be implemented in the everyday affairs of life. I grew up being the youngest child in my family and my mother passed away when I was
11 months old. I was raised by my dad for the majority of my childhood (thank God for my dad, I know he did the best he could). There were those who wanted him to give us away, but he promised my mom that he would keep the family together. At the age of 18, I became a mother and moved out on my own, learning a lot of things by trial and error (hard lessons the hard way). Because of the mistakes I made, I started gaining wisdom through observation, research and listening to other women that demonstrated lady wisdom. Later I underwent what I call 'The Caterpillar to Butterfly Transformation' that changed my thinking, my self-regard, and my confidence. That is why in 2016 I started WOW, to prevent teen girls and young women from making poor choices and having to live the hard life. I want to help them grow in wisdom and confidence, to challenge themselves to live a fulfilled life.
My aspiration is to transform, train, empower, and pass on vital knowledge to the next generation. I want to also, help female business owners promote their products and services and provide a platform for women speakers to impart wisdom by sharing their experiences and accomplishments. I would love for you to join me and our WOW Team as we endeavor to change the future for our young ladies!

WOW Core Values

“I would definitely want to come back to this event, not just because it was a lot of women sharing empowering stories, but the energy was so high in the room it was really good. You come from having a bad day or something going on and you come to this event and it makes you feel light and airy and gives you so much hope and positivity. I will come back again and would tell anyone to come back again because it’s great.”
