Are you struggling to put your thoughts and experiences into words that sell yourself and influence others to action?


Do you fade into the shadows when it’s time to deal with conflict, showcase your talents or respond to skeptics in the room?


Does the mere thought of dealing with different communication styles in business make your head spin?


When you join my 90-day, 1:1 coaching experience, I'll teach you how to move from hesitant and overwhelmed to confident and assertive in speaking up and showing up at work (and in life too!)

When I think about the LIFE-CHANGING success you pull out of us, I am speechless.


Since working with Kandia I have presented $1.91M in services to prospective customers not to mention the $875K in revenue Kandia helped me pitch during the program.  


In addition to increasing my sales potential, Kandia helped me find my professional purpose, better define my role at work, build a Team Training Series called ‚Äú30/30 Thursdays‚ÄĚ.¬†

-Kyra Jones, Consulting Manager, Deloitte


Kandia's skill and eye for talent are just a few of her finest qualities. She has been able to not only develop an effective brand strategy for my company but also has enhanced my personal brand visibility.

As a result, I 'm a co-host on one of PBS’s longest running cooking shows, America’s Test Kitchen, and my brand, SheChef Inc. is growing exponentially.

-Elle Simone, PBS: America's Test Kitchen TV Talent & Founder, SheChef  


Kandia has been my executive coach of 3.5 years. Her invaluable guidance and unwavering support have played a pivotal role in transforming my career, boosting my confidence, and revolutionizing my business processes.

From the very beginning, Kandia displayed a deep understanding of my strengths, weaknesses, and aspirations. She helped me identify areas for growth and development, and provided tailored advice directly applicable to my specific needs.

One aspect that truly sets Kandia apart is her ability to challenge me in a constructive and motivating manner. She consistently pushed me beyond my comfort zone, encouraging me to embrace opportunities that I may have initially hesitated to pursue while honoring my need for work/life balance and rest. 

Not only did Kandia assist me in developing my individual skills, but she also played a significant role in enhancing my overall business processes. She introduced me to frameworks and techniques that helped automate and maximize my efficiency. 

Her ability to actively listen, provide constructive feedback, and offer practical solutions created a safe and trusting environment for open dialogue and growth.

-Sarah Morgan,  Director of Equity & Inclusion, Consultant, Speaker and Writer


I reached out to Kandia when my voice was barely audible. Now, I am the loudest on those catch-up meetings and I can confidently ask questions about different things and in a composed manner. I wasn't able to do it last year.

-Waithira Kunene — Program/Outreach Specialist,


My department created a brand new managerial opportunity, and I decided to apply for it. I had a very short application time frame, but the scripts Kandia provided helped me to prepare quickly and articulate the value I would bring to the role and I got the job!

I highly recommend this program for anyone who is looking to boost their personal and professional brand. 

- Samantha McCoy, Marketing and Public Relations Consultant, Mission Key Communications
