About Strategic LadiesScholars, educators, authors, speakers, and relationship coaches
Dr. Estella Chavous and Dr. Jacinta Chavous-Kambach’s story starts with a mother and daughters’ bond and an exciting journey through time together. In 2012, while pursuing their doctorates together, this dynamic duo developed Strategic Ladies, an idea that birthed from their gift of gab, love for people, and openness to critical thinking. Their journey has taken them to what might look like a mystery book, uncovering clues along the way but always finding better solutions to improved relationships. They coined the term “Mind-Filled” to ensure individuals and corporations get the mind-filled information they need for knowledge exchange, conversations, and enhanced engagement. Their ability to provide mental, physical, and spiritual alignment in all types of relationships can be realized in the coaching, training, and media activities they provide. They offer a wide range of media services and growth tools, ranging from books, training, and coaching services. They are also public speakers available for private, corporate, and personal events. Their motto of “we are educated in theory but are practitioners of change” has resulted in the positive outcomes seen by their clients in diverse communities worldwide.
Strategic Ladies is the unique energy force that motivates, transforms, and empowers well-being!
