Hello Ladies! My name is Etrulia Troy Lee, M.Ed, Ph.D, aka “Dr. Empowerment” and I am the founder of Women Enlightened & Economically Empowered, LLC (WEEE). WEEE helps women grow in wisdom, wellness, and wealth. I strongly believe that success and lasting change begins and ends with mindset: whether it is changing one’s eating habits to achieve optimal wellness, having the courage to pursue one’s dream, or making a determination to prosper financially. It all begins with the renewing of the mind through embracing God’s wisdom found in the Holy Bible. Yes, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!
I am lifelong learner and am constantly learning something new. I completed her undergraduate work in education at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pennsylvania and my Master’s Degree, also in education, at University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland. I later went on to study holistic nutrition and completed a doctoral program at Clayton College of Natural Health. Along the way I have completed certifications in life coaching and also am a vegan coach.
Some people careers are a straight path…mine can be described as a winding road. I have this crazy idea that I should always do what makes me happy! So…my career highlights include:
- Classroom teacher
- Daycare Director
- Education Consultant
- Owner Chamike Publishers: Created Phonics Is My Way Reading musical reading series for young children
- Principal, Shabach Christian Academy
- Instructor USDA Graduate School
- Education Division Superintendent, Shabach Ministries, Inc.
- Holistic Nutritionist
- Adjunct professor of nutrition, Global Health College
I was raised in church and like so many young people, I made of the mistake of thinking I was grown enough “to do my own thing” in my lat teens and early twenties…not! Thank God he arrested me in at age 29 when I re-dedicated my life to Christ and have been walking with the Lord since. All praise to my heavenly Father! My ministry highlights
