Welcome

About Me

I’m Victoria M. Parham, but please, call me Victoria.  Thank you for stopping by to connect.  So, you wanna learn more about me, hey?  Well, grab your favorite beverage, have a seat, and let’s get acquainted.

I’m a Motivational Life Coach for Women who Dare to Dream Bigger – I meet women where they are in their lives (good or bad) and I help guide them through the process of achieving a specific Life Goal(s).  There you have it, the really cool, pretty version of what I do.

Now there is much more to me than just being a Motivational Life Coach, so keep reading to learn how I arrived to this place in my life.

A bit of History:

I was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey to Harold & Helen Mitchell.  My mom was a nurse and daddy, he was a Jazz musician (trumpet player who played with some of the legends, Sassy Sarah Vaughn, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and, countless others).

Immediately upon graduating high school, I decided to skip college and instead, I joined the United States Military (Army).   I spent much of my career overseas in Europe, where I met and married the love of my life – Dre.   Within a year, I became an Army wife, Veteran, and mother.  Instantly my life was changed.

The reality of the military lifestyle soon reared its ugly head.  As much as I tried to establish a career of my own, I was unsuccessful due to frequent relocation’s, economics, and, geography.

Fueled by frustration and anger, I began my quest to design a portable career that would be conducive to my new life as an Army spouse.

For the past two decades, I’ve held numerous job titles: consultant, resume writer, blogger, virtual assistant, chief technology officer, facilitator/trainer, podcast talk show host, federal government contractor, and, most recently {Motivational Life Coach}.  Of all the roles, I’ve managed over the years, I’m most proud of my role as mommy & wife.

My Strongest Attributes:

  • Listener – one of the greatest gifts you can give to another human being is your time and ear.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit – I believe whole-heartedly in self-empowerment and self-sufficiency.
  • Persistence – people who succeed, people who win – do so – because they never quit.
  • Visionary – my life is bigger than my present – therefore, I stay focused on the big picture, always.

What I know for sure is: God is in Control.

What I love most about Life Coaching is: watching clients transition from being powerless to becoming Empowered over every aspect of their life.  I am humbled and honored to be a part of that transitional experience.
