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.

YASSSSSSS!!! You definitely hit the topic and came in on time with it too because I had to have a difficult conversation with someone today and listening to this beforehand helped me change my whole demeanor about how the conversation would go and how I felt about it. Because they were senior to me but I’m placed in a position where what I had to say needed to be said because people weren’t dying, but my shop was suffering. And I put it off for a while because I didn’t know how to use my voice. Because I felt a bit out of place because I am a young staff, he is senior to me, I am the only female and i knew there were feelings about me being in this position that were slightly negative. And we have already had “discussions” pertaining to his attitude. Which started to make me feel like I was becoming more accommodating than effective as a leader. Which made me resonate with when you said your mentor said the discussion you had with someone was too long. I felt that! Because I am always talking thinking my approach should be more emotional and understanding. However, with this particular situation I just needed more directness because our discussions always ended with him changing the narrative and me unclear if they truly got the point lol.
Overall I am going to carry the scripture with me. It spoke volumes to how my life here has been going. I am here at a beautiful location but personally I haven’t been happy. But instead of being slow to speak and quick to listen I have been the complete opposite truthfully. And I know it’s only because I am or have reached a standstill with my personal and professional life but that doesn’t mean they stop so I can get it together (another reason for my social media break).
So again thank you so much for coming through with this topic. Because we’re trying out here and although we’re making waves, the challenge is still very real. Love past life ❤️
