My Story

Before any of these things; J’Kia had a calling on her life to be able to help those in need. When I 6 years old I began helping raise children, and from there my passion to help those continued. By the age of 12 I was giving advice to my peers and those much older than me. As life went on I had my own down falls such as addictions, physical and mental abuse,  depression, and the list goes on and on. At those moments I felt I had no one to relate to these things, because EVERYONE around me; life seem to be “perfect” (at least that how they acted). I battled with my belief on believing God was real, and then I finally knew He was real. I wondered for years why was my heart so genuine and pure for those in need, and then God told me because it is my purpose in life.

Becoming A Life Coach

My goal as your Life Coach is not just to help you accomplish that goal, but to stick to it and become a better you. Whatever your goal is you will not accomplish it alone, I’ll be right by your side every step of the way helping you make it through. Through my life experiences I have realized not everything has to be done on your own sometimes you need that one person who has been through it and can help you through it.
