About Strategic Ladies

Scholars, 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 in pursuit of their doctorates, 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 make sure individuals and corporations get the mind-filled information they need for knowledge exchange, conversations, and improved 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. 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 all over the world.
