Dr. Leatrice R. Brooks, LP


Speaker, Executive Coach, Licensed Psychologist, and successful entrepreneur and businesswoman, Dr. Leatrice (LEE-uh-tris) has been told she has a unique way of “holding people’s feet to the fire” to inspire growth. She consistently receives the feedback “you are in my life” without prior knowledge of the individual. She uses her skills to get in-depth quickly with her audiences to help them attain and retain their desired change.

While serious about her content, Dr. Leatrice is naturally funny and witty, adding an unexpected dimension to her work. She is surprisingly relatable and personable, making concepts amazingly easy to digest and apply. Outstandingly passionate about the growth and development of others, Dr. Leatrice’s heart is evidenced in her dedication to reaching and sharing her gifts with more people.

The Power in Presence brand was birthed out of my desire to see more high achievers be as good to themselves as they are to others.
