Resilient & Living Life


She turned her cant’s into cans and her dreams into plans.

Lonye is a proud Chicagoan and veteran of the United States Air force. Joining the military was the most life changing decision she has made. Because of her decision, she has traveled the world, met some of her best friends, and developed the skills to confidently help other people live authentically and fearlessly.

Lonye has always enjoyed being around people and helping people grow personally and professionally. She began successfully planning and marketing events at the age of 16. Her passion for helping people pushed her to become a certified life coach and to speak in schools, at conferences, and on various panels around the country. With loving yet wisecracking advice, Lonye encourages audiences to take charge of their happiness and success by staying true to themselves and never giving up.

Lonye earned her degree in Business from Hampton University. She became a senior information technology manager, started a T-shirt company, and continues to host events for the Air Force. She earned an MBA from Strayer University and has multiple IT certifications to include Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP).
