The Frugal Feminista


Since 2013, I’ve worked with thousands of women as a writer, coach, consultant, and speaker on helping black women break free from the money blocks and personal hurdles that keep them from being happy, wealthy, and brave. On top of that, I’ve partnered with a number of brands to spread this message.

From Prudential to Chrysler to Dove to Dryel, The Frugal Feminista has worked with quality brands with campaigns that align with our mission: financial empowerment and personal development that is authentic, kind, and thoughtful.

I have successfully worked with women’s organizations, nonprofits, churches, young professionals groups, fellowship programs, colleges, universities and civic groups.
