Les, founder of Balanced Black Girl

Meet Les

Founder and Host,
Balanced Black Girl

At the age of 20, I began my personal wellness journey in hopes of finding inspiration and energy while working my first corporate job (let’s just say it wasn’t a good fit). In a desperate attempt to stop falling asleep at my desk, I tried to introduce some radical concepts (for me at the time): getting up to walk a little more, actually drinking water, and learning to cook my own food. Before I knew it, I started having more energy, was building strength, had more mental clarity, and was becoming more confident than I had been before. Thus, my love of wellness was born and I wanted to share it.

I started my career in fitness as a personal trainer and fitness instructor in 2012, and launched my first blog The Balanced Berry in 2014 to share my love of fitness and nutrition with others. As a personal trainer and nutrition coach, I spent over five years helping women reach their wellness goals in a balanced, sustainable way.

After taking some time off from fitness in 2018, I pivoted to create Balanced Black Girl to introduce my community to Black and brown women experts in health and wellness and create a comfortable place for accessible wellness conversations and connection. Now as a 200-hr YT, I lead wellness conversations and create mindfulness-focused content to help us all find our balance.
