JoLanda is a business therapist, creative strategist, and soul healing counselor. Prior to full-time entrepreneurship, she held respected professional roles focused on empowering others and serving the community she lived. While in California, she served as Project Manager for a newly developed Children’s Psychological Clinic, Family Specialist for families with children experiencing a mental health crisis, and Deputy Managing Director at N.A.T.H.A. focusing on employment reentry for a high-risk and underserved community. In Wisconsin, she has served as a Pre-Vocation Instructor, Club Manager for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, and Director of Programming for Lead2Change, a youth career-ready organization.
As a being healed one, JoLanda believes if you heal your soul, you heal everything. She is called to walk alongside others on a healing journey that releases emotional freedom, grows businesses exponentially, and changes lives radically. JoLanda began a healing journey during the restoration of her marriage in 2007 and has remained on the journey personally, as a counselor, facilitator, and companion in various healing communities.
We are all on a journey, and I know personally the freedom and joy that can be experienced when light shines into dark places. As a redeemed one of complex trauma, I never ask anyone to do work I haven’t personally done and truly believe brings deep healing and restoration.
