Empower. Heal. Grow.

We can do this together.

We are challenged daily with the task of maintaining wellness, practicing authenticity, and developing sustainability and effectiveness within ourselves, as well as in our communal structures. Whether it's day-to-day tasks and decisions, or a broad implementation of strategic models, we are challenged with these similar practices. Therefore, my goal is to supportively educate individuals, small groups, organizations, institutions, and businesses who are endeavoring in improvement and growth. I seek to challenge and empower all that we are innately equipped to develop into our most healthy, most authentic, and most productive selves. Through my coaching, shared testimony, and gritty love, we will become more than we ever planned to be. And, it will be rewarding.

Who is Dr. Bee?

IMG_1114.jpeg

Greetings! I am Dr. April Bee, a Wellness and Strengths Coach, Journalist, Transformational Speaker, and Photographer. One thing that keeps me fueled is expressing and promoting empowerment in diverse communities to dismantle social and environmental injustice, combat oppression, and amplify the voices of those who were once considered voiceless. Along with this, I lead and equip communities, services, and businesses to be at the highest productivity and sustainability through empathy, education, empowerment, and of course, excellence. I combine my artistry, wisdom, and testimony to empower others to endeavor in facing and conquering life’s challenges to energize restoration and fulfillment. 


From losing my mother as a child, to enduring assault and severe health barriers, to overcoming suicidal attempts and braved trauma, I managed to persevere in resilience and become a Tenure-Track Professor at age 23, served as the Director of Multicultural Affairs at 25, but had the true resiliency to walk away from the chase of pretentious roles and follow my designed purpose. With professionalism and poise, I seek to ignite the power each individual possesses to revitalize and thrive as their best selves, as I have been challenged to do in my journey.

Through it all, I remain dedicated to faith, self-efficacy, love, and justice to create a unified movement of healing for diverse communities. Even with starting my own holistic wellness platform and business, becoming an uprising artist, blogger, and podcaster with over 1500 followers, and completing a Doctoral Degree in Social Work before age 30, my mission towards authenticity and wellness is just beginning. Now that you know a little about me, I want to learn more about you!
