Sassy Spotlight: Dr. Shanesha Brooks-Tatum


sassy spotlight dr brooks


In October, I interviewed Dr. Shanesha Brooks-Tatum, founder of the Black Women's Life Balance and Wellness Conference.


We chatted about her work and what it means for black women to utilize the importance of self-care, and also how to create a "self-care" wellness plan, which is something ANYONE can benefit from.



This was my first interview, so it's a bit clunky in the beginning. My brain moves too fast sometimes -- I find that writing allows me to slow down and get my points across more eloquently, I can delete the "ums, uh's and likes" that infect my speech patterns.


If you have a lunch break, some cleaning or any other spare time this week, turn this on and listen. 

These will go up monthly, so keep an eye out!


I have many fun, inspirational, and unique interviews coming up! Please stay tuned!
