From an early age, I began curating stories and ideas in my mind, writing in notebooks and journals. I’ve always had a passion for writing and poetry, yet somehow was drawn away from the art.
I pursued formal education studying Psychology, receiving both bachelors and masters degrees, with dreams of being a full-time licensed psychologist. After graduating and working in Corporate America and the unforgiving cycle of the daily grind, I was determined to pursue my passion of teaching, writing, and speaking. It was during this time that I deepened my practice and education of spiritual and holistic wellness.
I started my own blog “Sharon Elise” writing articles about my life experiences and inspiring people to begin the walk towards finding their purpose. I began to make aggressive strides in educating others on the importance of total body wellness and health.
I’ve been a guest speaker for several organizations including Rutgers Future Scholars, All Stars Project of New Jersey, Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals and Black MBA Leaders of Tomorrow, speaking on topics such as wellness, purpose, and empowerment. I co-founded a women’s empowerment group, hosted several meetups focusing on wellness, and received formal training as a doula and yoga instructor.
I have positioned myself as a vital nexus for young professionals and aspirants who seek inner peace via a non traditional approach. My love for writing and curiosity on how the mind works has transcended throughout my career as a writer and spiritual life enthusiast. Whether it be speaking at local community events or blogging about my experiences as a mother and wife, my testimony on how to live your best life, continues to flourish.
I continue to strengthen my journey by teaching small workshops to millennials in the art of yoga, finding purpose, and holistic healing. I currently host annual gatherings through my wellness platform Night Fairy Wellness and connect the world to black-owned holistic health and wellness businesses and resources through various mediums, including but not limited to yoga, labor and birth care, massage therapists, energy workers, spiritual workshops, and retreats. I have been featured in several online publications including Blavity, Black Girl in Om, and Be Yourself.
