Hi, I'm Tomesha!
An educator, speaker & health coach.
I am deeply committed to empowering healthcare providers with the education, training, and resources necessary to promote health equity and address health disparities, particularly among Black women. This mission is rooted in my experiences as a Black woman navigating a healthcare system that often overlooks the profound impact of implicit bias, discrimination, and racism on health outcomes.
As a health coach, I discovered that my health education training had neglected crucial topics such as cultural competency, social determinants of health, and anti-blackness. It was during my Master's degree in Sustainable International Development that these critical issues finally came to the forefront.
My realization of the gross inequities within our healthcare system came to light during my time at Partners In Health. As I delved deeper into these complexities, I incorporated these insights into my health coaching business's marketing, garring the attention of fellow healthcare providers eager to learn about these often neglected subjects in their education. This led me to participate in panels, guest on podcasts, and secure speaking opportunities where I could share my expertise at the intersection of health and social justice.
"After seven years of health coaching, I made the decision to close my business and shift my focus to providing comprehensive training for healthcare providers."
My goal today is to equip them with the tools and knowledge needed to deliver patient-centered care that encompasses and respects Black women's unique needs and experiences.
Through my work, I am determined to foster a more inclusive and equitable healthcare system that prioritizes the well-being of all individuals, regardless of their background or circumstances.
Together, let us embark on this transformative journey towards a more just and compassionate healthcare landscape.
I'm passionate about what I do.
Because I genuinely love it!
My vision is to create a world where Black women receive equitable and patient-centered healthcare that addresses their specific needs. I deeply understand that health disparities among Black women demand urgent attention.
As the founder of a healthcare research organization, I'm dedicated to being part of the solution. I invite you to join us in our mission to transform the healthcare landscape for the better!
