Suzette Vearnon was a guest motivational speaker at a women's healing workshop I conducted on April 22 and April 23, 2016, in Dulles, Virginia. Women from around the world gathered to learn how to become whole again. Suzette was so inspiring--she had all of us mesmorized with her words of strength and encouragement. We had four different speakers, but she was truly the highlight of the day. I highly recommend her to any venue that needs a speaker to inspire, strengthen, and rebuild self-esteem and strength.

I am extremely pleased with the partnership I have had with Lucie, my lifestyle coach. Lucies training and experience working with people who need to lose weight are extraordinary and the key components to my major lifestyle accomplishments. My quality of life has improved tenfold. Together Lucie and I have worked on identifying what I want out of my life, goals to reach my dreams, and an action plan for success. Lucie has created a safe space where I feel comfortable telling her anything. I have gained many new insights and understandings on areas of my life that I need to tweak as well as identifying all of my strengths. We have faced some tough issues head on and I have made it through the hardships a much better person. Lucie has been beside me throughout my weight loss journey expressing encouragement and support. She has provided a good balance between supporting me and confronting me to be accountable for my choices. She is my anchor keeping me grounded and focused on what I want out of life. I have lost over 300 pounds and gone from being wheelchair bound to walking 5Ks with my walker. Lucie has been instrumental in building my self confidence and self-esteem. I used to be a very shy individual. Standing in front of people and telling them about my weight loss journey seemed impossible. That is until I started working with Lucie. My confidence and self-esteem has grown tremendously. I am now a motivational speaker talking to rooms full of people about the importance of losing weight and exercising. I have increased energy, mobility, and I am no longer watching life pass me by. I am smarter at goal setting and communicating my needs to my support network. I have lower stress levels and a more balanced life. Lucie provided me exactly what I needed throughout the rough patches. Her commitment, persistence, and wisdom were second to none. She gave me the confidence to fly on my own. Our partnership throughout my weight loss journey has been a gift I will always cherish.

I've heard a lot of speakers all over the country and I would say that Denise Ryan is the best I've ever heard. She was so energetic, engaging, and entertaining. The information was so relevant and everyone walked away feeling like they could implement some of the tips that she gave us. I would hire her again and again!

When Dr Denise came to talk to a group of my teenage students one day at school, they were engaged and entertained by her motivational presentation. I had students asking about her weeks later. I know she left a positive lasting impression on theirs minds. Her talk was relevant, concise, and postive. She knew her audience and spoke to them in their language with out compromising the message.

Sandra Dubose is clearly on her way to becoming an international, multimedia success. This native New Yorker, known as the Bald Beauty Queen of Self-Esteem, is a dynamic motivational speaker, author and smooth jazz vocalist with an inspiring personal story that has made history and national media headlines. Sandra is a role model for women of all ages, and she teaches them how to build healthy self-esteem through the practice of self-love and self-acceptance. She is a patient advocate for womens health issues and has been ever since the age of 25 when she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease, Alopecia Areata. This incurable condition resulted in the loss of all of the hair on her scalp and body and subsequently, the loss of her self-esteem. She was forced into a compelling journey of self-discovery and had to learn firsthand how to heal emotional wounds, overcome obstacles and rebuild her confidence. As a testament of her courage and star power as a vocalist, in March 2011, Sandra competed bald in a statewide beauty pageant. She made history when she was crowned 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina, the first bald beauty queen of the state. In her life changing book, My Crown and Glory, Its Not About the Hair, she shares her personal life lessons and six principles she used to shift her life from being a victim to living in victory. Sandra is sought out nationally to deliver her empowering message through words and song at conferences, schools, corporations and churches. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2012 Radical Woman Award and the 2013 SWIBA Inspirational Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This positive role model and youth mentor is being the change she wants to see in this world and paving the way for others to do the same.
