Hey! Thanks for Stopping By...
I'm Portia Richardson a Zealous Social and Emotional Learning Strategist , Certified Life & Wellness Coach, and a devoted Community Leader.
For the past 10 years, I have had the luxury of working in comprehensive & alternative educational settings, which sparked my interest in the importance of educating "the whole child". As a parent of school-aged children and educational leader, I strive to provide schools and districts with training and resources to implement high school social emotional learning practices through mindfulness and restorative justice. As an SEL Strategist, I aim to bridge the gap between research & practice by providing evidence-based professional development and coaching services to educators & practitioners who have a vested interest in a holistic approach to teaching and learning.
In this quest for revolutionizing the world of education, I witnessed the diversities & hurdles faced by students & families in the pursuit of knowledge. These experiences & diverse student narratives inspired me to embark on a journey which led to the formulation of Tumaini DC – A 501(c)()3 Non-Profit Organization which nurtures students from underserved communities to engage in transformative international experiences through highly-structured leadership programs.
Being a Certified Life & Wellness Coach, I strive to help learners & their families adopt a holistic approach to service, wellness, and healing which can cultivate their progressive growth & development. This passion for community service helped me formulate HEALfest Global – A Company which continually work on promoting holistic wellness and aims to cherish & support the generations of today & tomorrow.
