Hey there! I'm Enuma.
I got you...It's pronounced eh-new-mAH
I'm going to be honest with you...
Picture this: I'm at the top of my game professionally, battling three months of migraines, and waking up every day in a marriage I know I co-created but where I couldn't quite find myself. Classic Monday, right?
So, I did the unthinkable. I walked away from my high-paying, high-influence job, fully aware that it was taking a toll on my well-being. And after some deep therapy, I made the gut-wrenching decision to end my marriage.
There is no sugarcoating it. This was a *seismic* shift in my life.
But I wanted to understand and grow the parts of me that accepted just surviving and "going along to get along".
So I lived off my savings and took a year-long sabbatical, a soul-searching journey marked by intentional self-care, almost daily journaling, lots of tears & days in bed, a few flights, and deep dives into self-discovery. I took all the tools I had used to guide others throughout my career—facilitation, professional development, coaching, you name it—and threw it right back at myself.
I fully faced myself. I grappled with new routines and enforced new dynamics within my familial relationships and friendships to protect my peace. I focused on building a healthier mindset and acquired skills that rewired my entire existence. I won't lie; it was the hardest thing I've ever done. But let's be real, who said transformation was a walk in the park?
And along my journey, I saw that I wasn't alone. I met other sisters on the same rollercoaster of self-neglect, stuck in situations they accepted or couldn't escape. That got me thinking. We all had this collective story of putting everyone else first, dealing with toxic work vibes, and doing the identity cha-cha.
And so my journey continued
In the messiness of self-discovery,
I made the decision to thrive, not just survive.
And now it was time to help others.
Enter She Thrivin'—my brainchild.
She Thrivin’ is more than a company; it's a transformative movement. While I support all individuals, regardless of identity, this movement was created for sisters who, like me, have faced the heaviness of self-neglect and are ready to flip the script.
We are a sisterhood where ambitious women of color come together to create a life marked by deep fulfillment and long-awaited achievement.

I’m in no way the same person I was before I worked with Enuma...
“...and I’m so grateful that I’m a few dozen steps closer to who I envision being. I’ve adopted her questioning in my self-reflection, sought more creative ways to pour into myself via different hobbies, and left relationships that no longer serve my whole being. I’ve also learned how to reframe my thinking and define success under the terms that I want, instead of what society (including well-intentioned family/friends) wants.”
