Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Angela has traveled and lived all over the world determined to live her life with conviction and purpose. She has over 25 years experience working with teen and young adult education, public relations, event productions, business and personal development.
Her first love and true passion is teaching. From the age of five she was speaking in front of her church and by age eleven she was teaching classes on religious education. Demonstrating that “age, ethnicity and gender can be bridges to connect us instead of barriers and excuses” - from a young age she passionately set out to show that anyone can make a profound and lasting impact. With a willing heart and committed spirit Angela has taught, coached, guided and motivated people worldwide. She has been a prominent speaker at hundreds of local, regional, national and international conferences and events.
Angela’s entrepreneurial talent and abilities led her to build several successfully thriving ministries, companies and organizations from ground up. The underlying theme of all that Angela creates aims to foster connection, support, truth, empowerment and education.
Angela is the creator and founder of Living Empowered®. Tenaciously she continues to cultivate this international organization as it is the vehicle for her lifelong vision and mission. In 2009, with Living Empowered, Angela launched an international empowerment movement. The movement is underway and continues to grow with the purest of intentions and heart.
Her long awaited book, This is Who I AM, will be released in the Fall of 2011. This will kick off a three year international book presentation and training tour. Additional books, audios and DVDs will be released throughout 2011.
Angela’s hobbies and passions are many. Dancing, writing and being in nature with loved ones are her top three ways to spend her personal time.
Angela's biography is purposely general and modest. She prefers not to list numerous past titles and accomplishments. As she shares in her book, “I am not a collection of positions, labels and roles. I am not the creations I’ve built from concept to fruition. I am a loving and purposeful woman doing my best with the gifts and abilities I’ve been blessed with. My life experiences helped me get clear on who I am and who I am not. I am deeply rooted in my values and I have great respect for where I come from. Journeying from humble beginnings provided even more gratitude for all the opportunities and abundance that I’ve encountered and created.”
Angela is honored to be of service. She is committed to supporting people to discover, accept and love who they really are. Her presentations are always high energy, interactive and fun. She will guide participants beyond the surface and challenge them to think and feel in ways they may have never experienced. They will walk away with hope, inspiration and skills to support themselves in being their most authentic self.
