About My Journey

Since 2016, I have assisted people in overcoming obstacles to their weight loss issues, health and way of life.

Life is far too short to be unhappy, unsure, or dissatisfied with how we look and feel.

I am here to help you in recognizing and eliminating the obstacles that are preventing you from advancing.

You will study and build long-term answers to the obstacles you confront in releasing unwanted weight, as well as a lifestyle to maintain the weight loss. You will no longer be confined by binge eating and restricting. ​I will reveal how I overcame my own weight loss challenges using realistic strategies, methods, behavior modification, mindset coaching, meditation, and nutrition on a consistent basis for over eight years to maintain my results.

Let's I.R.I.S.E. as a group, shall we?

- Coach Kenya

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 Abusive marriage, and the death of my soul, which was reawakened with resolve and SET ON FIRE when I heard the words! ​Courtesy of Katy Perry: Rise​​

The chorus gave me the confidence to R.I.S.E. because the words spoke my reality, gave reality to my 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. Which gave birth to the name of my coaching firm and luxury boutique.

I've been sharing my weight loss experiences, strengths, strategies, talents, and hope for over 8 years with the purpose of helping others lose weight, and live the life they want, and I.R.I.S.E.I honestly feels that authentic change is a resuscitation of one's life in its entirety. ​Assassinate the weight with a coach who can Relate.

My Biggest Change

It all started in 2014 with a shake that changed my life. This nutrition, regardless of health or wellness, provides the body with the vitamins and minerals it requires to thrive.

I'm still fueling my body with science-backed organic nutrition 8 years and 468 pounds later. I couldn't be more overjoyed.

Somewhere in my darkest moment, God found me, and I found the courage to pick myself up, dust off the crumbs, and find a way out of the vicious cycle of emotional eating, binge eating, and starving. As a result, my weight rocketed to 592 and I was given 30 days to live. It wasn't until I faced the food monster within myself and made the decision to fight back that I was able to begin the process of healing. God sent my divine helper toting amazing science-backed nutrition I began eating organic undenatured whey nutritional meal replacements, using the 3-2-1 Meal Plan including fresh fruits and vegetables as well as fitness and Mindset coaching.

I applied behavioral modification techniques and the weight came off as my body begin to release toxins and naturally heal itself. After 2 years, I released over 367 pounds. I am no longer a slave to food! The life God has given me to live is worth fighting for. I continue the daily battle with grace to save my own life.

Eight years later and 468 lbs. pounds released to date, I am helping others find the same freedom weight-wellness issues and the barriers of obesity. ​For more about my journey grab my Best Selling Book .
