In a world that often demands constant hustle and external validation, we envision a future where every individual is equipped with the tools and mindset to prioritize self-care, cultivate self-love, and harness self-empowerment as the cornerstones of their well-being and success.

Our vision is a world where individuals recognize their inherent worth, prioritize their well-being, and inspire one another to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. We believe that when individuals embrace these principles, they not only enhance their own lives but also contribute positively to the world around them.

Through support, advocacy, and resource we aim to empower individuals to:

Prioritize Self-Care: We envision a world where self-care is not seen as a luxury but as a fundamental right. We strive to provide resources, guidance, and a nurturing environment for individuals to develop sustainable self-care routines that nourish their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Cultivate Self-Love: Our vision is to foster a culture of self-acceptance and self-compassion. We encourage individuals to embrace their uniqueness, forgive their imperfections, and love themselves unconditionally. Through workshops, coaching, and self-discovery journeys, we aim to help people build a strong foundation of self-love.

Harness Self-Empowerment: We believe in the inherent power within each individual to shape their destiny. Our desire is to equip people with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to set and achieve meaningful goals, overcome obstacles, and become agents of positive change in their lives and communities.

Working together, our shared aspiration is to shape a future in which self-care, self-love, and self-empowerment serve as foundational tools for cultivating a more compassionate and thriving world, ensuring that everyone has the chance to flourish.  


I founded ONE P.E.A.R.L. MOVEMENT with a vision to make self-care, self-love and self-empowerment a daily healthy habit worldwide.

The mission of ONE P.E.A.R.L. MOVEMENT is dedicated to creating opportunities to provide support, advocacy and resources for manifesting healthy narratives towards self-care, self-love and self-empowerment.

Our motto is "Keep Moving! Keep Living One Purposed. Empowered. Authentic. Radiant. Life."

When YOU make the decision to activate your super power Dr. Reed calls “Power of One Movement", you are creating momentum towards action which houses the power to guide you towards living in your purpose. "Power of Effective Communication" means understanding words have power. What you feed yourself, good or bad you believe. Eventually your mind, body, spirit and soul stops knowing the difference between what is real and what isn't real. Let's change that! Dr. Reed is dedicated to creating opportunities to provide support, advocacy and resources for manifesting healthy narratives towards self-care, self-love and self-empowerment. 


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 others? 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, you're probably just lacking in self-care. Self-care means taking the time to do things that help you live well and improve both your physical health and mental health. Making self-care mandatory is not selfish! Caring for your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being will cultivate your fortitude and compassion, providing you with guidance and purpose in all your endeavors!

Self-love, defined as “love of self” or “regard for one’s own happiness or advantage”. Ultimately you hold the power to loving yourself! Don’t wait on someone to give you love when you can give it yourself. It’s time to make you a priority and you can start today by talking to and about yourself with love. Put yourself first by prioritizing your needs. Whenever I’m writing out my to do list, somehow I always end up on the bottom. If this is you, flip your list and put yourself first! Live your authentic self by being kind, giving yourself a break from self-judgement, forgiving yourself when you aren’t being true or nice to yourself.


Taking back your power and making yourself a top priority is worth everything! Build up your Faith! Turn your experiences into Wisdom! Walk in Grace, Favor and Gratitude!
