Tasha M. Brown, Ph.D.
Early in her academic career Tasha recognized her desire to serve others by helping them live out their purpose. Having earned multiple degrees in psychology and human development Tasha is known for her ability to help others tap into their unique and God-given gifts. A natural orator, she has also been known to inspire audiences of all kinds in the classroom and at conferences with her unique talent of addressing mindset and behavior.
Tasha's passion and skill for personal development comes from her own challenging transition from student to professional. In the midst of a rigorous graduate program she realized that she was not content with a definition of success that did not incorporate all areas of her life. She knew that in order for her to be at her best she needed to attend to her spiritual, physical, and emotional needs; all while pursuing her professional goals. Tasha has seen the many benefits of an inclusive definition of success in her own life, and is passionate about helping others expand their definition of success.
Tasha works as a clinical psychologist in New York, NY. When she's not at work you'll likely find this Long Island native running half-marathons, hiking, or curled up with a new book.

Timeka N. Tounsel, Ph.D.
Timeka is a certified personal and executive coach with degrees in communication, international relations, and journalism; however, it is the struggle to define her own unique legacy that has best equipped her to reach others in such a powerful way.
Timeka was in the middle of her graduate program when she first began doubting her purpose. As a newlywed in her mid-twenties she became overwhelmed with the growing list of expectations that consumed her home and professional life and left her unfulfilled. The relief she felt from taking on a non-academic position near the end of her graduate career quickly faded. Even with a new title, Timeka felt like something was missing.
Seven months into her position she decided to stretch her faith by finally taking her dreams seriously. Following the voice of God in her heart she resigned her position, reconnected to her purpose, and reprioritized her life.
Timeka is a faculty member in African American Studies and Media Studies at Pennsylvania State University. Her favorite way to spend free time is laughing, dining and traveling with loved ones. She lives in central Pennsylvania with her husband and son, but she'll always identify as a proud Detroiter.
