As a lawyer, coach, inspirational speaker, and author, Pearlette Ramos, PhD, JD uses her humble beginnings to inspire and awaken others to live more fulfilling, passionate, and authentic lives. Pearlette has a special way of connecting with others that empowers them to transform their self-limiting beliefs into calls to action. She uses her personal story as evidence for what’s possible for others when they relentlessly pursue their dreams!
Armed with a strong intention and vision for her future, Pearlette turned numerous adverse childhood experiences into triumph. She dropped out of high school in 10th grade when she became pregnant at 15. Sadly, at four months of age, her infant daughter died of acute bronchial pneumonia. Pearlette channeled her heartbreak into positive action by enrolling in college, then law school—becoming the first in her family to graduate from both. After practicing law for 11 years, she went back to school and obtained a doctorate degree in psychology. In addition, she has raised two beautiful daughters and has traveled the world—having visited all seven continents and more than 60 countries.
Pearlette’s speaking topics include:
There are triumphs and defeats on the path to self-discovery. The journey towards the self is often a rocky one. The good news is, every experience --no matter how challenging --can be used for good! As we come to understand and accept ourselves, we begin to see our own uniqueness. With acceptance comes the courage to express our authenticity in the world.
Pearlette Ramos uses her life experiences, research and authentic presence to bring depth of wisdom and substance in claiming your true self. By combining inspiration with thought-provoking discussions, Pearlette helps listeners reveal who they really are and what they really want, at the deepest level. To bring our authentic presence forward, we do not have to change who we are---we must simply give ourselves permission to express what’s in our hearts.
Travel requires that we stretch and bend and adjust to the experience right in front of us. Often, we have no time to think or analyze. Instead, we must be in the moment. This is one of the reasons travel has transformative power! Venturing around the world offers new opportunities to see and experience our lives and ourselves.
When we step out of our comfort zone and engage with the world, we get to see ourselves differently. As we partake, we grow. We break boundaries. We have fun. We take risks. We overcome fear. We set new records. Most importantly, we give ourselves permission to try, and fail—and try again. The process helps us cultivate a relationship with our authentic self. Pearlette uses travel experiences and inspirational photography with audiences to help close the gap between where they are and where they want to be.
Often, women butt up against societal norms or belief systems that tell us who we are and what we are capable of. During the past half century, women have caught up with men in earning college degrees and employment outside the home, but still do not experience equality in media representation, corporate and political leadership, or pay. Generations of inequalities have become the acceptable norm. Women are told to shut up and sit down while they are excluded from the boardroom, executive offices, and political offices—the very places where their voices and strengths are sorely needed.
The presence of women, in every corner of American society, but particularly in positions of leadership, is needed now more than ever. A woman who speaks her truth, stands up for what she believes is right, and does so using her authentic power, as her greatest strength, is a woman who will change the world! Pearlette speaks at women’s conferences and other events revealing how our courage, faith, and love—of self and others—can transform who we are and the world we live in.
Pearlette has experienced significant struggles and successes throughout her life. These experiences have given her a unique perspective that she shares with audiences around the world, bringing inspiration and awakening wherever she goes.
