STORY BEHIND THE BRAND
We are so glad you are here, please take a few moments and read about the "Babe behind the Brand, the Boutique & the Business.
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.
Two years into my weight loss journey after releasing 364 pounds using nutritional cleansing the deep sadness returned, due to serious medical challenges and physical limitations. I felt hopeless, was lost and ready to quit.
Who was I? I was not inspired by my own journey or identity. I had released the weight of a nuclear family, but I felt stuck, broken and lonely. Sharing my current state with a friend she sent the song, "Rise"by Katy Perry. Life changing! I listened to the song, and recalled my journey from sexually abuse, childhood rape/ pregnancy, homelessness, food addiction, divorce after 16 years of marriage and the death of my soul was awaken with determination and SET ON FIRE!.
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 lyrics told my truth,the real truth and the chorus gave me permission to R.I.S.E.. I realized if I could overcome one thing, I can overcome ANYTHING!
From that day forward I would chant, "I Realize I'm Strong Enough to win (I.R.I.S.E)." It became my self proclaimed motto and the name of my coaching firm and lifestyle boutique.
Now for over 7 years I have shared my weight loss experiences, strengths, techniques, skills and hope to help others shed the unwanted weight, live the life they desire and I.R.I.S.E. I truly believe a transformation in its totality is a resurrection of one's life. Assassinate the weight with a coach who can Relate.
Today I.R.I.S.E. Inc. is a flourishing Transformation and Resurrection Coaching firm helping individuals all over the world transform their health and resurrect their lives.
No matter the what we will rise!

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.

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 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

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.
