T. Nicole Washington
Speaker, Writer, Mentor, and Life Empowerment Coach
Meet T. Nicole Washington
When I think about my greatest motivation in life, I would have to dedicate that title to the strong women in my family who have all passed. In addition to influential figures such as Maya Angelous, Brene' Brown, and Rachel Rodgers, the women in my family taught me how to bravely face adversity and how to also let my guard down and be vulnerable. The strength and wisdom these women exude challenged me to reflect deeply on my life, and they taught me how to live authentically. I carried these values into my career, and I am now a proud life empowerment coach, inspirational speaker, avid writer, and dedicated mentor.
Although I have faced great trials and tribulations throughout my life, it was these devastating occurrences that helped me transform into a strong and life-changing leader. As a child, I grew up watching my father and mother abuse each other on many different levels. My parents were young and, not having the tools to raise children or mend a broken marriage, they eventually divorced. While my mother neglected me as a child and focused instead on her drug-addicted boyfriend, I formed a close bond with my grandmother and my aunt.
Both women have since passed away, but I will never forget the warmth, nourishment, and love they extended to me when I needed them most. As I got older, a passion ignited in me to live a life much different from the environment that I grew up in. I earned a Master of Business Administration degree with a focus in Human Resource Management. Even into my adult life, my past trauma left me living in survival mode, where I would often take care of the needs of others over my own. Having served as an HR leader as well as in the banking and healthcare industries, I have pivoted my focus to helping others overcome their grief and trauma so they may transform and achieve their life goals.
Through life empowerment one-on-one coaching, group coaching, behavioral assessments, workshops, mentorships, and even inspirational speaking engagements, it is my passion to aid others in their journey to taking control of their lives. When I am away from the office, I enjoy going on nature walks and even bird watching. You can often find me relaxing by writing; my most recent book, The Majestic Woman's Renewal Guide, dives deep into my life's stories to teach lessons of growth and renewal. Even when I am not working, I am brainstorming new ways to assist others in overcoming their fears so they can learn to love themselves graciously.
