Marie Combs, CEO of Nail'd Beauty. I’m a disabled single mother who’s passion is nails and all things beauty related. Nail’d Beauty was born from that passion during the start of the pandemic wanting to offer luxury nails at affordable prices.

Jawharrah Bahar, owner of lashing artistry and provides skincare products and services by promoting self care and self love to all. Website is to book your appointment today.

Latoya Mitchell, CEO of Alise Anthony Designs. During the pandemic, I longed for something more. I wanted to use my creative side - I needed an outlet. I began creating content for myself as a hobby, which then turned into me creating content for others. Hence, Alise Anthony Designs was born. My superpower is helping/serving others which would explain my goal to provide visual acts of service. There's nothing I love more than knowing that I was able to bring someone else joy (except my kids and a good meal of course). Creativity fuels my mind, body, and soul. It's only right that I share my gift with others.

Autumn Prather, CEO of The Mother & Daughter Experience™ or M.A.D.E., is a nonprofit, 501(C)(3) corporation that champions the sacred bonds of the mother and daughter relationship so that families are enhanced, communities flourish and the world is changed.

She left a lasting legacy of diligence, dedication and determination and a love for the arts. To date, there have been over 195 women and girls impacted, over 400 women reached at their free virtual masterclasses, 200+ hours devoted to community service and $1K collected for the Mrs. Linda M. Everett ARTS Memorial Scholarship Fund.

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee with national certification. I earned my M.A. degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University-Nashville. As a licensed mental health professional, I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults who are challenged with anxiety, depression, impulse control, communication and overall adjustment to life changes. My work with adults include group settings, couples and family counseling. While I provided services for a diverse group of clients, I extends my reach in underserved black communities and people of color offering support, psycheducation, and resources. I have served 12 years in the helping field blazing trails as a mentor, educator, advocate, therapist, clinical supervisor and recently aquired the title of author. My therapeutic approach is client-centered, solution- focused and humanistic in nature. The Jackson Impact started as a brand to “ interrupt the stigma” on mental health.
