My career as a student of life began well before college. Raised by both parents with the privilege of spending a substantial amount of quality time with my maternal and paternal great-grandparents, I am a little old school. I still enjoy laughing with my grandmother. I learned good manners, southern hospitality, consequences of breaking rules, and of course the importance of education. At 12, I made an important decision to live for Jesus Christ. The foundation of Christianity is living by faith. It was not until certain trials that life gave me opportunities to activate my faith.
One of the lessons I pieced together over time was that I was perfectly fine being Ayesha. Being me with no additives is the best way to honor my creator. I was gifted with visual and literary talent as well as the ability to connect with a diverse audience even as a youth.

My mother taught me at 11 that I am influential. Ever since, I have been searching for answers.

Redesigning my life after a family crisis, career changes, and divorce has been a challenging journey I needed to do alone. Self-reliance was key for me to embrace my gifts and arrive at this point. A book was birthed during one of my lowest points. I no longer want to keep my story to myself. I want to see you experience your next winning season, too. My coaching philosophy is based on the game plan that got me MORE WINS through all my losses: Revive, Rejuvenate, and Reinvent.
After living in survival mode, I had to revive myself and stop living with the numbness. When you experience pain at a certain depth, healing is necessary. I would like to partner with you as you boldly own your healing process; it is easy to appear as a functioning woman still preserving enough to serve others.
