> My appreciation for holistic health and wellness has been woven into my business model from the start. Over the years I have attracted a loyal base of clients in the U.S. and abroad. Indigofera products have been featured in the Huffington Post, Black Enterprise and BET. In 2009, I earned a Masters in Business Administration, and today I teach other women the strategies, skills, and steps to start and grow their own microbusinesses.

> I believe in cultivating both inner and outer beauty in women. That is what Radiant Beauty is all about.
