Chicago native, Brandi N. Williams, is a writer, speaker, minister, and entrepreneur. Since completing her BA Sociology at DePaul University in 2004, Brandi has been speaking, facilitating workshops, and leading small groups for women and youth in the areas of personal and professional development. Through this work she has demonstrated a commitment to equipping and empowering individuals to discover their purpose. Brandi has been a featured speaker for organizations such as Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program, Catalyst Maria Charter School, Richard J. Daley College, and Salem Baptist Church of Chicago.
In 2012, while obtaining her Master’s degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Brandi completed a research project entitled Glorifying God through Fashion; it explored how fashion can be used as a tool to engage young women with biblical principles. She has since regularly lent her voice to matters such as body confidence and personal value. In fact, Brandi most recently published her first book Legs Down, Prayers Up: 6 Keys to Unlocking Purpose While Waiting, a guide dedicated to women in the pursuit of knowing their worth, walking in purpose, and living in freedom. Her publication has gained attention from media outlets such as Chicago’s WVON 1690AM and 760AM The Gospel, in Nashville, TN.
Since 2016, Brandi has expanded her reach as a coach and consultant to communities, and organizations, seeking to enhance confidence in clients and staff. She currently works with Corner to Corner as a co-facilitator and program coach for The Academy, a 10-week entrepreneurship program. Brandi currently resides in Nashville, TN. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and proudly stands 6’3".
In her spare time Brandi can be found journaling and sipping coffee. She enjoys dancing, dining, cooking, and making collages as well. Personal affirmations and butterflies are dear to her heart, and she longs for the day when she will have her very own personal tree house for self-retreat.
