Hi, I'm Kenya LaShelle Elliott

Since 2016, I've been assisting my clients in overcoming barriers to their health, wellbeing, and general lifestyle. It's far too short a life to be unhappy, uncertain, or unsatisfied.

I'm here to assist you in identifying and removing the hurdles that are holding you back. You'll learn and establish long-term solutions to the challenges that arise during your life.

I will share with you how I conquered my own personal weight loss issues and lost over 450 pounds utilizing practical tactics, techniques, behavior modification, mindset and science-backed nutrition regularly for over 7 1/2 years. 

Let's I.R.I.S.E together, shall we?

A transformation in it's totality is a resurrection of one's life.

Welcome to I.R.I.S.E.  ( I Realize I'm Strong Enough) INC.

Beautique & Transformation Coaching Firm 

 My Brand  I.R.I.S.E. 

My significant dissatisfaction persisted after dropping 364 pounds in two years through nutritional cleansing, owing to major medical difficulties and physical limits. I was depressed, hopeless, and ready to give up.
Who precisely was I?

My own history and identity did not inspire me in the least. Despite the fact that I had relinquished my nuclear family obligations, I still felt confined, shattered, and alone. When I informed a friend about my current predicament, she emailed me Katy Perry's song  "Rise." Life-altering! I listened to the song and remembered my own journey through sexual abuse, childhood rape/pregnancy, homelessness, food addiction, 16-year marriage, and the death of my soul, which was reawakened with resolve and SET ON FIRE! ​

Let's I.R.I.S.E together, shall we?

Courtesy of Katy Perry: Rise​

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins
I know it, I know it
And I will not negotiate
I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform

When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, you're out of time
But still, I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in, think again
Don't be surprised, I will still rise

The chorus gave me the confidence to R.I.S.E. because the words spoke my reality, gave words to my real truth. I understood that if I can conquer one obstacle, I can overcome ANY obstacle!

"I Realize I'm Strong Enough  (I.R.I.S.E)" became my mantra from that day on,  as well as the name of my coaching firm and luxury boutique.

I've been sharing my weight loss experiences, strengths, strategies, talents, and hope for over 7 years with the purpose helping others lose weight, live the life they want, and I.R.I.S.E.

I honestly feel that change is a resuscitation of one's life in its entirety.

My Journey: Obesity and Me

Obesity and I have been in a constant tug of war my whole life, or as long as I can recall. In my family "food" was everything. Food gave my life and the things around me meaning.  Snacks, cakes and candy, couldn't abuse, neglect or abandon me, so we became "worst friends". Food gave me hope, until it didn't.

After falling severely ill,  paralyzed from the waist down, and  deeply depressed in 2010, food picked up where it left off.  I was eating to breathe, to think to sustain. Food made life in that hospital bed bearable.  I gained 389 pounds gained in 10 months to add to my already 203 pounds of body fat. I become a full blown food addict and compulsive overeater.

Everyday and all day I was consumed with food, what was I going to eat, when I was going to eat and who was going to bring it to me to eat it. The cycle to eat drove my whole day and my existence. I was no longer eating for nourishment, but to soothe the emotional wounds and  deep rooted pain. Eating was survival kit and coping skill for life. As a result my weight rocketed to 592 and I was given 30 days to live. 

I am so grateful that God sent my divine helper  toting amazing science backed nutrition to show me different. 

Seven years 467 pounds released and many lives to inspire before  I sleep.   For more grab my Best Selling Book.

My  Professional Career

I have completed my Bachelors Degree in Art,  and a Masters Degree in Professional Counseling & Behavioral Health.  I worked for over 15 years in the Behavior Modification and Clinical Psychology with pedophiles,  the severely mentally ill, and Adolescent Behavioral Health. I truly loved my career and retired to return to school to become a Physician's Assistant 

however life took a turn  for the worse and I landed on my deathbed weighting 592 pounds eating to die.

By the grace of God and a true Miracle today I am serving my purpose and calling by helping others. 

As a Motivational Speaker, Entrepreneur, Best Selling Author, Weight loss  Guru, Transformation Coach and Boutique Owner, I am running my dream company and loving my life. 

From 592 to You Can too

My Family

My name is Kenya ( Keen-ya) LaShelle Elliott, I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. I am the youngest of seven. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend but most of all I am an overcomer determined to R.I.S.E.

I am married and have two beautiful daughters Ages 30 & 33 and four amazing granddaughters. 

My youngest daughter Kennisha Dash'e, full of life, love and a ball of excitement gained her wings at  9 months old.  She is my Angelic inspirational superstar.

My inspiration is her loving memory of Kennisha's life, and my  personal weight loss journey from Death to Destiny gave birth

I.R.I.S.E. ( I REALIZE I'M STRONG ENOUGH) INC.   

When I am not working or spending time with my family

I have an extensive love for art, music, dance and all things beauty.  I have always loved makeup, singing, dancing, writing poetry, crafts, and  Fashion. I am a Best Selling Author and Published Poet. These things give me life they are my spaces for creativity and serenity. 

Music is the rhythm to my soul. I love all types of music, rock, rap, classical, Christian music a listen for the connection. As a little girl I attended the community recreation center for dance classes and I fell in love with the expression of movement, which gave birth to my love and desire for dance today. 

After spending many years being unable to dance or write my poetry due to depression, paralysis and  a severe health condition, today I am enjoying all my favorites since taking my life back, overcoming my self imposed death bed and obesity, I choose life everyday. No matter What.
