Your voice is the source of your power.
Black women have always been powerful.

The power dynamic shifts when you become less concerned about being liked and more concerned about taking a stand for what holds weight in your heart.

Hello, I’m Felicia,

Mentor to Quiet, Introverted Leaders...

…and I’ve been right where you are.

Elegant and masterful branding is my Superpower.

It’s the very reason why I’m here to help you shift and show up

as your most capable, confident, and emboldened self.

When it comes to women in the workplace,

Black women have it worse.

“Women are having a worse experience than men.
Women of color are having a worse experience than white women.
And Black women in particular are having the worst experience of all.”

The State of Black Women in Corporate America (Lean In)

The truth is…

You’re smart, driven, talented with a track record of success aka you get the damn thing done.

And in exchange for all of that…


Sadly, the reality is…

No matter how Smart, Certified or Degreed Up you are, one major reason why you continue to be overworked and underpaid has little to do with your skill and everything to do with Authenticity, Presence & Powerful Positioning…

And what’s worse is…

Generational trauma, racial inequities, and bias cause Black women to either get trapped in a cycle of proving and hustling hard…at the expense of their sanity and self-care and they find themselves hanging on hope while laying low and becoming emotionally tapped out relying on results alone to get them an invitation to the rooms where big decisions are made.

Our world is truly at a critical fork in the road and the stakes have never been higher.

What’s exciting is…

You, as a leader, hold the key. You have the potential to become a catalyst for instituting a radical new form of leadership where hierarchies are reduced, innovative thinking is expected from all and everyone is treated as an equal partner with their own leadership platform and role to fill.

Right now, it’s time to be more strategic about how you leverage your brilliance.

Because when you are, the entire trajectory of your career changes.

After successfully helping hundreds of women create bespoke leadership brands…

I know with complete certainty that absolutely nothing trumps the influential power of a well-branded Black female leader.

Anything less fails to do the magic of cracking open hearts, minds and the bottom line and positions you as an easily replaced commodity!


You are a purpose-driven, mission-focused Black female leader who is frustrated because you feel overworked, overwhelmed and underappreciated.

Your relentless drive is born out of your deep bias for action, yet you keep getting ignored and passed over.

You have an undeniable track record of success, but you’re often caught by the grips of imposter syndrome.

You’re ready to fully step you’re your power and create a new narrative…

In the Words of Our Blessing
A group of unicorns is known as “a blessing.” And so are our clients.

“Felicia is truly like a stroke of genius! She has been given the responsibility to pull women together and wake us up into being who we’re supposed to be as leaders. I’m grateful for her gift.”


“You are a great coach and facilitator. This experience was accelerated, but it had a lot of depth and you made it enjoyable with your words of encouragement and support.”


”Before working with Felicia, I was emotionally stuck which caused me to be professionally stuck. Although I projected confidence and poise on the outside, inside I was insecure and afraid to take risks. The inner work that I did throughout our journey has been very cathartic and cleansing because I have been able to break free from the shackles of fear and insecurity. This program truly liberated me from a lot of baggage that had been weighing me down for years and keeping me stuck in a rut. Now I feel so much lighter, liberated and empowered!”

Adrienne Brown – Corporate Leader

”I am forever grateful for my work with Felicia and will never forget the awakening I experienced in the process. Before our work started, I lacked focus, clarity, consistency and I learned that I was hiding out in fear of being an imposter. Now I am very clear about my vision, mission, and values and I understand that my leadership requires me to be visible. Felicia is the TRUTH when it comes to Branding Your Brilliance. Thank you Felicia for over delivering!”

Dvina Lyons – Educator and Speaker


Honestly, it’s because I’ve been where you’re heading and I remember the early days in my HR career when my deep introversion cost me not 1, 2 or 3 but 4 job opportunities that I really wanted. Being the introvert that I am, I was a quiet leader who performed exceptionally well and while my performance served me well to an extent, I eventually became stuck and unable to move to the next level. The problem was while I was a great performer, I didn’t show up with the level of passion and gravitas that some of my peers did and as a result, I would be ignored and overlooked for great opportunities. I wasn’t visible enough to be seen as valuable and I had not developed my leadership voice in a way that would allow me to be heard, respected and chosen. The harsh reality I had to face was that while the company was benefiting from my expertise, I was literally being treated like an easily replaced commodity. Luckily, I wasn’t too far into my career before I ‘woke up’ and realized that not being respected and compensated for my value was nobody’s fault but my own. Ouch!

After being fed up with seeing less qualified and less skilled people be chosen over me, I realized that I was neglecting to focus my efforts in the three areas that mattered most: ReputationRelationships & Results. I also had a very interesting revelation that while you absolutely must always deliver excellence, what gets you chosen over your peers is being masterful at packaging, positioning and delivering what you do in a way that disrupts patterns and creates a burning desire for change. This is when it became crystal clear to me that developing my communication and leadership skills were the two things that would help me get out of my own way and more importantly get me unstuck.


I was promoted from HR Assistant to HR Generalist 6 years later I earned my seat at the Executive table.

AND… I never had to ‘job hunt’ again.
It was all because of the power of my leadership brand and I want the same for you.

Are you ready to step into your next level of success?

This is critically important because the way you think influences the way you lead. Since the brain is the control center of our human experience, when you commit to mastering your mind, you’ll get in the driver’s seat of flipping the script on limiting beliefs rather than allowing negative thoughts to hijack your confidence, performance, and ability to lead well.
