Who Is Salita

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana the third of four daughters, Salita’s mother cleverly incorporated lessons based on civility and etiquette into playtime as well as in daily chores. It was a time in which good manners and proper etiquette was not only practiced and expected, it was enjoyed and appreciated. The supportive, educational, faith-based experience enjoyed in childhood was followed by the structure and protocol required by the United States military with retirement after 22 years and a truly wonderful military career. In the midst of it all, she has been blessed with a loving husband, children, family and friends, a successful corporate career, and the entrepreneurial opportunity to pursue a passion to help others transform into a polished version of themselves.

What Does Salita Do
