Hi there, I'm Tomesha!
An advocate, educator, and catalyst for change.
I am dedicated to equipping healthcare providers with the knowledge and tools to address Black women's unique challenges in their pursuit of equitable healthcare.
With over seven years of experience in the health industry, my expertise has left an indelible mark on prominent health organizations, including Health Union, Autoimmune Wellness, and Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) Certified Coach, where I'm a revered contributor.
My influential presence extends to popular podcasts like Enneagram MBA, The Lunar Body, Marketing Online With Ease, The Wealthy Coach, and Phoenix Helix. I've graced esteemed events with my wisdom, including My Mind Is My Business Summit, Your Healthy Client Roster Summit, The Shift Society, Quarantine While Black, and Coaching for Better Health and Wellness.
With a portfolio boasting certifications such as Fitness Nutrition Coach (FNC), Precision Nutrition (PN) Level 1 Certified Coach, and AIP Certified Coach, I'm ready to revolutionize healthcare and ensure every Black woman receives the care she deserves.
"In the world of healthcare, I embarked on a journey that would forever alter my approach to coaching and life."
Three years into health coaching, a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren's syndrome revealed a stark truth - health challenges can't always be conquered with kale smoothies and spin classes.
This revelation led me to uncover a glaring oversight in our healthcare education: Black women's distinctive barriers to accessing equitable care. It's a topic seldom discussed, yet essential for any provider aiming to deliver genuinely inclusive healthcare.
I, too, grappled with acknowledging the inadequacies in the advice I received. Initially dismissed when I sought help for my autoimmune symptoms, I was met with recommendations to eat better or shed a few pounds. This weight-centric model of care, I realized, failed to account for the specific needs and circumstances of Black women.
Through my graduate studies and tenure at an international health organization, I uncovered the chasm contributing to adverse health outcomes for Black women. There, I learned the vital importance of advocating for oneself, an experience that ultimately saved me.
This transformation inspired a shift in my coaching style, propelling me to raise awareness about the unique challenges Black women face. The glaring need for a tailored approach to equitable care became undeniable. I knew I had to make a stand, ensuring providers understood that a one-size-fits-all approach is ineffective and potentially perilous for Black women.
Yet, advocating for this change wasn't met without resistance. Misconceptions about Black women perpetuate higher disease burdens and mortality rates. Within a healthcare system designed without their needs in mind, Black women face the most significant risks.
The turning point arrived when my expertise found a platform. Podcasts, panels, summits, freelance writing, and private training sessions allowed me to disseminate my message on a broader scale. It was then that I realized the power of my voice and the effectiveness of my approach.
From this realization, Enhance Black Women’s Health was born. Its mission is clear: equip healthcare providers with the knowledge and tools to address Black women's unique challenges in their pursuit of equitable healthcare.
So, here we stand, ready to empower providers and revolutionize healthcare. Join me in this mission, and let's ensure every Black woman receives the care she deserves. Book me for future engagements, and let's make a difference together!Book Me to Speak
