Lyresa was born and raised in Jamaica Queens, New York. With her calling unknown, she always had the gift of a “social butterfly” and the joy of helping others. After moving to Atlanta, where she still resides with her family, Lyresa completed her college degree while raising her daughters as a single parent and working full-time. Her passion for helping others extends beyond the walls of her home to others known and unknown alike in her everyday life.


Lyresa desires to live out the purpose that God has given her to honor him, help others, and enjoy the passion she has in bringing joy to others. She has been blessed with many talents through Christ and personal experiences, and wants to share the blessing of knowledge and hands-on training to improve peoples lives through guidance, personal development, and life management.
