Working with women daily helped Tishawna to find her true purpose. Seeing the joys & laughter, the tears & pain, also her own life’s experiences pushed her closer to accept the call to do something. Tishawna founded A Beautiful Lady Exploration Center better known as The ABLE Center, a non profit organization that serves as an advocate for the Everyday Working Woman, providing resources and services that motivate, empower, and equip everyday working women as they reach their goals in becoming better mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, neighbors, and friends. Through their solutions focused workshops, events, and reliable resources, they are committed to being and helping those who desire to be “A Better Me” physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and socially for overall self-care.
Tishawna gives all thanks, honor, and glory to God for equipping her to be able to help others to believe in themselves and walk boldly and unapologetically in their divine purpose. Overcoming many obstacles herself to include low self esteem, social anxiety, and emotional exhaustion she understands that women deserve another chance and she believes that love never fails. A common quote from her is “It’s time to help women to be better, so that our families can be better, which will result in our communities being better, making this world a better place.”
She has recently started a new program for the Beauty Professional! The voice of a Hairstylist, Barber, Makeup Artist, or Nail Tech may be the 1st and sometimes the only one offering encouragement and motivation to those who need it. As hair and care professionals our position is very important to the heads we hold daily and ourselves. We have to maintain our business, safety, and personal lives as well. ABLE Conversations Professional Stylist Edition is held once a quarter on a Monday during lunch hours. This quarterly meetup brings beauty professionals together to network, share resources, and have amazing conversations to strengthen personally and professionally.
Tishawna shares this life and everyday's blessings with her best friend and husband Ron, 2 daughters Breona & Ashanti, and granddaughter Olivia.
