MEET REBECCA

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I’m a Clarity + Confidence Coach on a mission to light up the world. 

As a recovering perfectionist, overachiever, and professional box checker (aka go to school ✔, get a good job ✔, fill in the blank) I realized that I did everything I thought I was supposed to do and yet was still miserable. So in 2017 I quit my job, sold everything I owned, and bought a one-way ticket to Malaysia.

Over the next 6 months, I lived in and traveled to more than 15 countries and haven’t looked back since. Since then, I’ve created a dream job that allows me to work from home in my pajamas with my dog Donny Hathaway, replaced and doubled the six-figure income from my full-time job, and attracted my soul mate partner – all because I’ve given myself permission to live in my light.

Now I’m on a mission to inspire, empower, and support other high achieving women of color get the clarity to discover what truly lights them, the confidence to chase their wildest dreams, and take the action needed to create a life they love.

She was inspired to create “Changing the Face of Power” – the first podcast in the country dedicated to inspiring black women to run for office – after losing her election for State Representative in Michigan by just 6 votes on Election Day. She wants to teach candidates everything she learned the hard way so they can run and win the first time.
