This idea of PDX women of color stemmed from a strong desire to serve and create a community for Brown and Black women to come together to connect, learn and inspire each other. Whether you are a native Oregonian or a transplant it can be very isolating to not see people that look like you where you live or where you work.

After spending some time in the South it was important to her to duplicate that sense of belonging in Portland that she felt traveling to places like Atlanta and South Carolina.

She took an idea based on connection and turned it into a beautiful movement including Beauties Who Brunch, the annual Thrive Summit, and numerous networking events.

Moniquea plans to continue expanding the growth of the PDX Women of Color community and simultaneously help women empower each other through workshops, networking, and summits.

Like so many, Moniquea wants to live her best life out loud so she decided to leap after her dreams after a 12-year career in the public sector. She knows that many women allow fear to keep them from building a life they love and accomplishing the goals they want to achieve. So as a Motivational Life Coach she’s made it her purpose to connect with women who want more, and help them design a life they love.
