As we navigate this thing we call life it is easy to get bombarded by people’s opinions, the expectations we have for ourselves, the expectations that others have for us and the mentality that we have to grind ourselves into the ground on daily basis to be successful. Especially at work when you are interacting with different people and their mindset on leadership or taking care of people is different from yours. There are going to be days when you won’t see eye to eye with people. There are going to be days when you feel you are on an island by yourself. When you feel like you are on your own, you just may be. Guess what? The feeling is normal and isolation is not bad thing. Use that time of isolation as a time of growth. There will be times when people won’t always agree with you. There will be times when you feel like you are talking to a brick wall. There will be times when people won’t see your vision. That is perfectly okay sis. Take this time to pull back from the environments that are draining the life out of you and regroup. I promise life will go on. People will still be there when you return. Isolation is key. As you grow in who you are as a woman, leader, etc. you will see that isolation will show up and in some cases will be necessary. Don’t feel bad about it. Do what you need to do. Your main focus should be you.
You got it Sis!
Remember we all have the ability speak life! 💋

Who is She?
I am a Wife, Mom, Daughter, Full Time Employee, Friend and Change Agent that has been succeeding, failing and winging it for years. Although I am not perfect, I do know that God has been guiding my path along the way in each journey. No matter how good or bad my experiences may be or have been, I know they serve a purpose. What is that purpose? To show you that you are not taking this journey called life alone.
Over the years I have met phenomenal women with stories that you would not believe unless you heard them yourself. I created the SheSpeakz platform as a way to “Speak Life” into ourselves and those around us. SheSpeakz is a way to tell our stories and encourage women to embrace their journeys. At times it may be uncomfortable but there is someone who needs to hear your truth. I love meeting other people, listening to others about their life experiences, making connections and helping others make connections. When women collaborate with and support other women, amazing things happen.
Some of my passions are leadership/personal development, empowering women to be themselves, mentoring, public speaking, baking, traveling, writing my blog and spending time with my family and friends.
I currently reside in the San Antonio, Texas area with my spouse and our two active children.
My call to action for you as a reader is to embrace who you are and know that you are enough. We all can use a little improvement in some areas of our lives but don’t let that stop you from loving yourself and being the best you. I also ask that you take the time to encourage and support one another. In this delicate time, we can all use positivity in our lives. I also ask that you are intentional about making a positive impact in the lives of those around you and in your local communities. Use your talents that you have been given to change the world one good deed at a time.
You can communicate with me on the following platforms:

Thank you for stopping by, I look forward to our journey together.
