As a result of what Dr. Leslie Inspires provides, our mothers experience more peace in their lives, clarity in thinking, and begin to establish healthy boundaries with their son. We are looking for women who are interested in transforming the relationship with their son… starting with themselves.”

Dr. Leslie, a former public school educator is the founder and CEO of Dr. Leslie Inspires. While working with families in public and private school settings for over 20+ years, Dr. Leslie has encountered many fragile relationships between African-American mothers and their sons. Between the raising of black boys who find it difficult to become men to the boys who lack personal responsibility and end up in the US Prison System, the need to help black mothers stop enabling their sons and cultivate healthy relationships with them has become more clear.

Since Dr. Leslie continues to see the same problem over and over again, she has developed a group coaching program and workshops to help women discover strategies to help their teen, twenty, thirty or forty something year old son grow up. This problem did not just start. Dr. Leslie believes that if we empower and educate these struggling African-American mothers then the boys to men cycle will be stronger and our young men will be empowered to make better decisions that will positively impact their lives and the lives of those around them. Her book, Setting Boundaries for Your African-American Son: 8 Practical Steps to Take Control of Your Life, gives her a platform to help in a subject area that no one is talking about but everyone knows exists. She gets satisfaction and added-value to her life knowing she is making a difference in the lives of the people she serves.

Being an agent for cultural change and seeing the impact she is having on mothers and their sons has put her on her soul’s path. When someone that she has helped sees the impact that she has made in their life and comes back to say “thank you,”  it is her continuous confirmation that she is walking in her purpose for a time such as this. Dr. Leslie has a very distinct “feeling of knowing”  that she is doing exactly what she was born to do at this point in her life. She believes that every experience that has plagued her or made her feel deeply sad was for now. She believes that every conversation that she has had or didn’t have with a mother about her son was for now. She believes that for the many personal, confidential, and emotional conversations that she has had with people, over the years, who believed, entrusted and sought out her advice...was for now.
