You Are Here: Welcome To She Field Trips!

Diana Ross Mahogany quote

Reflection from Bali, Indonesia, March 2017: I remember when I read “Eat, Pray, Love” years ago and being so inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert’s adventures and her ability to translate her journey for a worldwide audience. But a part of me was also angry.

Where were the adventure stories of Black women? Was the “hero’s quest” a luxury not afforded to us? We could break down, but there’s no time to discover our breakthrough?

2007 was a turning point year for me because after my own breakdown I discovered that self care and self exploration could be life saving. I decided to build a lifestyle around prioritizing these truths.

A decade later, I have so much to celebrate during this 37th year of life because God got me through. Not only did I survive, I thrived.

I had a spiritual reading and the sista told me I needed to take some time to gain clarity around my life and purpose. As I continue to work through the areas that seem cloudy, what I DO KNOW is that I want to inspire Black women to seek what fulfills them and empower them to claim those things.

I want to promote healthy living, healing, learning and self discovery as a lifestyle.

I want to encourage personal story sharing, starting with my own.

I want to be of service to help facilitate women and girls giving themselves permission to live their highest visions through my creativity: books, articles, workshops, courses, public speaking, inspirational products.

I want to share the DOPENESS of:

LIVING life intentionally;

Reading amazing books;

Enjoying live music;

Playing!;

Traveling to unfamiliar places, or;

Discovering the newness in the familiar places; and

SHENANIGANS! (random, but oh-so-necessary adventures)

The way is made clear by clearing the way.

And so it begins.
