When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. That was the case for Elona Washington. A survivor of childhood trauma, Elona Washington's mission now is to inspire others to heal from the pain of their past.
Through her publishing company, Power From Pain, Elona helps survivors, coaches, and healers publish their memoir or inspirational book so they can transform the lives of women and men who resonate with their message. An author and motivational speaker, her memoirs and anthologies are Amazon bestsellers and she's written articles for the Huffington Post, Thrive Global, and the online magazine, Digital Romance. Her speaking engagements have been covered by Fox, CBS, and NBC, and she was interviewed by USA Today, Washington Inquirer, Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Sun, and more. Most recently, she was awarded the honor of moderating a panel at the 110th NAACP Annual Convention and her research study abstract, The Reading Habits of African-American Women, was accepted by the National Association of African-American Studies (NAAAS). As of March 2020, she now serves on the board of NAAAS.
Ms. Washington's educational background includes an M.S. in Marketing Management from the University of Maryland University College and a B.A. in African American Studies from Howard University.
