Executive Director

Keeya Allen
Marketing/Branding Director

Fun Fact:

I love the Boondocks! The hood in me lives vicariously through Riley and the independent thinker in me lives vicariously through Hughey! LOL

My Thoughts on Being:

I came across this quote that said, 'The definition of hell is - during your last couple of breaths, the person you became gets to meet the person you had the potential of Being.'  I've chosen to leave this earth experiencing heaven instead of hell. I live with no regrets knowing that the person 'I AM' is the person I choose to BE right now and everyday until my last day on earth! 

Fun Fact:

I love exploring new adventures, obtaining knowledge, and traveling throughout the world!

My Thoughts on Being:

Relaxing and resting in YOU is what BE-ing is to me. Often times people will torture themselves in attempting to be something, or someone they're not. You are the best by being the best you. Always know... YOU are LOVED. YOU are enough. YOU are deserving of all things great. YOU are supported. YOU are capable. YOU are brilliant. YOU are liberated. It is your birthright to LIVE, LOVE, and to gracefully dance in your purpose.

Fun Fact:

My fun fact is that I Love Hoodies that have my favorite childhood cartoons displayed.

My Thoughts on Being:

I am the Being of my foundation. Without knowing my "WHY" I would never get to my ending. My Being is to stay Grounded & Connected, so that I am always READY for whatever.

Iyonna Ross
Executive Assistant

Fun Fact:

I love to climb trees and I am very good at it. To be able to climb to the top of a tall pine, especially when the wind is blowing, is an amazing experience. I am cradled in the arms of the tree and can feel it dancing in the wind. At these times, I feel part of the energy of the cosmos.

My Thoughts on Being:

I am a child of life and a global citizen. I firmly believe the words of Dr. King and try to act on them, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”  I believe in love and live my marvelous life accordingly with great gratitude and zest!

Fun Fact:

I am a foodie! The emotions that I have when I am about to try new food is exhilarating for me because I am a picky eater. I might like it and I might not and I love being in the space of not knowing!

My Thoughts on Being:

As I am settling into my 20’s I have found this quote that I created to be profound. It reads, ‘Being able to make the decision to come out of your comfort zone to accomplish greater things is an accomplishment all on its own!’ As I am showing up in my truth more, this has been the blueprint for how I am transitioning into attaining the lifestyle I am moving towards.

Fun Fact:

I sing and dance everyday! I love music and always have a song playing in my head. So, if you ever see me bobbing my head to a beat you can't hear, mind ya business, lol.

My Thoughts on Being:

Everyday I wake up I am given another chance to choose how I want to walk through this world. I choose to be the kind of woman my mother would be proud of.  I choose to not judge myself nor others. I choose love, joy, kindness and peace. I choose to move with intention and purpose in pursuit of freedom.

Fun Fact:

I LOVEEEEEE CREATING! It doesn’t matter what it is… There’s something about applying healing love, joy & touch within my hands to CREATE something is fascinating. Whether it’s cooking, writing or hugging a loved one. I step into the essence of “Whatever I touch, turns to GOLD”

My Thoughts on Being:

“BE-ing is a state of The Divine Mind combined with the courage of an Inspired Heart. 

 

In ALL things we mirror that infinite knowing to reflect layers & layers of ancient existing. Remembering that we may CHOOSE TO RISE with every occasion to LIVE rather than simply exist.”

Fun Fact:

Fun Fact:

Travel is a healing salve that soothes my mind, body and soul. Travel is my oxygen. I need it to breathe.

My Thoughts on Being:

I am 1970’s. Bell bottoms, fitting yet wide. Intricate patterns and prints, I move diagonal, zigzag, never a straight, boring line. 

 

I am 1980’s. New York, the concrete jungle that raised me. On the outside I am hard, textured like city stoops. My center, soft and warm like the love true hip hop elicits when bars are spit.

 

I am 1990’s. Coming of age. Figuring it out. College bound. On the yard. I am the best of R&B.

 

I am 2000’s. Caught up in the matrix of the American dream. Trying. Striving. Coming up short. Never enough.

 

I am 2010's. My mask is too tight.

 

I am 2020's. I am liberation from a narrative that held me captive to limiting beliefs. I am self-love.I am gratitude because my Creator embodied my spirit in a Black woman.
