Hey, I’m Gieselle.
I’m a Black, American, queer, able-bodied, neurotypical, cisgender woman…
…and a leadership coach for folx of color.
I feel so grateful every day that my path in this world is to help folx of color reclaim their brilliance and power so that they can stand up, speak their mind, and lead us into a future that our ancestors have only dreamed of.
But tbh – I wasn’t always this liberated.
For most of my life, I felt like an outsider trying to fit in.
Growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, I always felt like I wasn’t Black enough. I “talked white,” was introverted and a bookworm, and overall just not the “right” kind of Black.
When I moved to Los Angeles, suddenly I was TOO Black – I was acutely aware that my Blackness wasn’t a good thing and I slowly started believing that I was too Black, too ugly and too fat to fit in anywhere. In turn, I did my best to assimilate and distance myself from my “Blackness.”
Poor, sweet baby Gieselle.
I want that to happen for you too. I want you to unlock your potential and reach the pinnacles of success, whatever that might mean for you.
If you’re interested in:
- Saying fuck you to the cookie cutter ideas of “success”
- Finding the courage to do what feels right for YOU
- Discovering ways to integrate your identity into your career, art, leadership, etc.
- Living your best fucking life
Take my hand and let’s do this together.
