Episode Info:

You ever notice how the “wellness” industry is just sooo white? It isn’t that there aren’t Black teachers, healers, and leaders out there, it’s that they’re not getting the same face time as their white counterparts. Then there’s the HIGH cost creating a high barrier or entry for the communities that most need care.

This week’s guest, Lestraundra Alfred, is working to change that. Founder of Balanced Black Girl, Lestraundra works to highlight the Black womxn leaders in health and wellness and discuss some of the many issues we Black folx face in navigating a white dominated and classist industry. Listen as we talk wellness, Black joy, and changing how we care for ourselves!

Lestraundra is a Social Media Manager, Podcast Host, experienced corporate communicator and wellness advocate. She started her first blog The Balanced Berry in 2014 to share her love of fitness and nutrition with others. After years of feeling dissatisfied with the lack of diversity in wellness content shared on large platforms, she pivoted to create Balanced Black Girl Podcast in 2018. Balanced Black Girl is a lifestyle brand that provides content and experiences empowering women of color to live their healthiest lives.
