About the CEO/Founder
Aletha Jacobs was reared by her grandmother and single mother in south Louisiana, and she endured issues with abandonment, self-esteem, self-image, and struggled with being a follower as a young girl. Therefore, she believes it is important to address those issues in young girls early on and let them know that she too can do anything, be anyone and it is ok to be a leader.
Through consistency, dedication and strong faith, Aletha was able to maintain two Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology/Sociology and a Master’s of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling. Aletha has worked in the mental health field for over 14 years and has mentored and helped cultivate women in the workplace.


Aletha has volunteered with several ministries and community organizations; however, she believes God has purposed her to elevate and inspire girls to become better women.
