…Sisterhood for the Black Woman is more than friendship. It’s a safe haven from the outside world. In a society where we rarely feel seen, heard or fully protected, a strong sister circle can be life saving.
The one place that allows us to let go, unwind, let it out or just relax. A place of emotional trust. No masks or facades needed. To be vulnerable without explanation, angry without criticism and exhausted without guilt. A place to share resources, thoughts, traumas and triumphs. A safe space to lend an ear, a shoulder, be a prayer partner, share a laugh, shed a tear, have a drink, take a walk or hop a flight. A support system and mini village to whoever needs it. A tribe of like-minded women who consider each others needs and respect each others boundaries. We know the value of sisterhood and we honor its essence.

“I’ve been seeing Marquita for about a year and a half now, and she’s been such a positive influence in my life. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about exercise science and nutrition, she has helped me through a lot of mental blocks that have held me back throughout my fitness journey. This woman is passionate about what she does and it shows. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for support in their wellness journey.”
