“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”- Maya Angelou
Today’s guest is the embodiment of all of the above!
Nakeisa Jackson is a certified life coach & mentor, registered nurse, speaker, author, blogger, and wellness advocate. While in college she received a diagnosis of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). After receiving this news, she decided to get educated on the disease and seek out services. When she began her journey of healing, she noticed a major gap in the representation of women living with HIV. This led her on her first mission to educate women around the world via the internet, events, and coaching programs.
