What if you could help someone everyday move from exclusion to inclusion, unfulfilled to satisfied or hidden to visible? What if you are already helping someone everyday move and you didn’t even know it? Now imagine if you are that someone that received the help you needed. How movements are created is when we decide to move our efforts from unseen to seen. Sometimes we just need a little encouragement and reminder that we are PURPOSED. EMPOWERED. AMBITIOUS. RESILIENT. LEADERS. If you have committed to impacting the world in a positive and courageous way you are a vessel for H.O.P.E. You epitomize the One P.E.A.R.L. Movement!


Our mission is to educate, elevate and encourage self-care, well-being and belonging in communities by providing tools that manifest healthy narratives. Our Motto will inspire & motivate you to live your best life; shout it to yourself & shout it to others! It’s a movement after all! “I AM ONE Purposed. Empowered. Ambitious. Resilient. Leader. Won’t you BE ONE P.E.A.R.L. too!”

When One P.E.A.R.L. makes the decision to activate their super power Dr. Reed calls “Power of One Action”, you are joining a collective of fellow One P.E.A.R.L. super heroes working to make this world a better place. Dr. Reed uses her journey to educate, elevate and encourage those that dare to commit to making their communities better in an honest conversation on what it takes to help others, pushing through the difficulties, celebrating the small wins. Remember it only takes One P.E.A.R.L. to move the world!


The symbol of the Pearl resembles our legacy, our pride, our respect. We first learn to be proud of who we are through the love and values instilled in us by our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, aunts, cousins, sorority sisters and sister friends. To some, pearls may be seen as an extravagant piece of jewelry. For some, pearls represent pride, beauty, simplicity, elegance a representation of womanhood. The power of the pearl is truly transformational. If you ask us WHY WE WEAR OUR PEARLS?  To represent the lineage of women that didn’t have to wait for others to approve who they were to know who they are!


Have you ever felt alone even though you are around other? Or what about exhausted but you can’t recall any of the work benefiting you? What about feeling like you care more than others? If you felt any of this, you are not alone. Making self-care mandatory is not selfish! Taking care of yourself mentally, physically and spiritually will build your resilience and empathy and give you direction and purpose in everything that you do! Taking back your  power and making yourself a top priority is worth! Build up your Faith! Turn your experiences into Wisdom! Walk in Grace, Favor and Gratitude!
