About She E.O.

We’re here because it’s in our hearts to encourage human beings! But more importantly, Women! With all that’s on our plates from being wives, moms, sisters, friends, Christians, Corporate Bosses.


We are learning to be deliberate about balancing our lives and taking time for ourselves! Sometimes a She E.O. is all of these titles and sometimes a She E.O. is just a couple of them! But what we are clear about is

our jobs are tough!


Where ever you are, we understand!

Our desire is to create a fun and safe environment where we motivate each other to be better and to push towards the best version of ourselves.


Finally, She E.O. will teach our community to celebrate women like never before! It’s a commitment, it’s going to take work and we’re ready to lead the way! We need each other and we are always more powerful, together! 

We believe all women should embrace who they are,
define their future, and set out to change the world!
