Assaulted as a little girl, sleeping in a van as a young adult, and living in a women’s shelter, Erika Gilchrist has earned the title of “The Unstoppable Woman.” Today, she is regarded as one of the most energizing, engaging, and captivating speakers in the industry. As a published author of 10 books, she provides compelling, solutions-based content to empower those who may struggle to identify and unleash their inner strengths unapologetically. She also educates those who have found their voice on how to create authorship using their unique genius. She has trained diverse audiences – from entrepreneurs and professionals, to stay at home parents, incarcerated inmates in the Illinois prison system and behavioral health providers as well. She believes that everyone has a story that needs to be heard. Erika helps organizations create an additional revenue stream by guiding them through the process of creating collaborative books for those they serve. She’s been featured as one of the “15 Most Powerful Women on the South Side of Chicago,” CLTV, Chicago Woman Magazine, and Rolling Out Magazine.
