Strengths, Authenticity and Purposeful Living!

Authenticity is key for personal and professional growth. As the Relational Strategist, I coach high-performing and over-worked women through the process of owning who they are as they manifest their authentic self, restore synergy and become a priority in their life. Sisters, you can only grind for so long before it begins to cost you something more valuable – peace of mind, health and wellness, self-care and/or quality relationships.  Exhale!  Know You Are Enough!  Leverage the power of your strengths.  Focus on what makes you uniquely YOU!  Re-ignite the fire in WHO you were created to be. Live a life of authenticity, power and purpose. For yourself and Influence for Others!

    Teri McGraw Certified Master Coach -
  • “I got to know Necie personally and professionally while working with her on a major project she coordinated for my company, Nikki Woods Media. Our arrangement required almost daily contact with me and more than 20 others she managed for a literary collaboration.

    Necie dealt with the team as a group and individually with patience and kindness as she guided them through a variety of phases lasting several months. As a professional, Necie’s contributions were equally impressive.  She was entrusted with day-to-day involvement with my team and she was punctual, dependable, and performed her duties in an exemplary fashion. She has excellent written and verbal abilities and her organizational, planning and management skills are impeccable.  She performs with confidence and it is clear that she is serving within her passion.

    I am already working with Necie on a second project that is equally challenging and I have no doubt that she will perform as well as she did before. I would gladly recommend her based on her skills and her character.”

    Nikki Woods CEO of Nikki Woods Media and Victoria Street Media and Publishing Solutions Founder of the Spotlight Conference, Senior Producer of the Tom Joyner Morning Show -
  • “Necie is a producer of greatness, very professional and detail oriented. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Necie on several projects for Nikki Woods Media and witnessing her genius as she’s facilitated breakout sessions and key talks. She is the queen of project management, authenticity and life experience. Her knowledge base is phenomenal and one you must experience. I highly recommend Necie for your next book project women’s retreat, conference, or corporate event; that’s if you want it done in excellence.”

    Ebony Combs, MS -
  • “Necie was a Speaker at our 4th Annual Conference (EPIC) and she did an amazing job speaking on personal development topics relevant to leaders! She has a delicate yet firm way of connecting with her audience and moving them to action.  We’ve worked with Necie in other capacities as well and she always over delivers, is trustworthy and gets the job done! If you’re looking for a Speaker to connect with the authenticity of your audience, hire Necie!”
