Charreah knows that love, success and happiness are possible for today's women and men. As ESSENCE Magazine’s Relationships Editor, she provides love and career insight for the publications 11 million readers and hosts events nationally including at the annual ESSENCE Festival. She is a certified family life educator and featured expert on CNN’s Headline News, VH1, WEtv and ABC News. The National Association of Professional Women named her a 2014 Woman of the Year. Charreah is a popular speaker, lecturer and workshop facilitator nationwide and a career coach for Dress for Success.
Charreah knows the relationships in our lives shape our vary existence from the bedroom to our bank accounts. As a love and career coach, she also helps clients around the nation discover a life they love and is the founder of the advice site BossBride.com.
Past speaking clients include the 2014 International iDate Conference, American Society of Journalists and Authors Conference and the Women + Power Conference, headlined by Gloria Steinem. She was a keynote speaker for the first Single Wives Conference in Atlanta, to help savvy women become smarter daters. She’s been profiled in top outlets and the book “Daring to be Ourselves” by Marianne Schnall, which highlights influential women including Maya Angelou and Cameron Diaz. She also provides work/life harmony workshops for corporate clients.
The savvy communicator has her finger to the pulse of today’s evolving woman. As the Social Media Editor for fashion and beauty agency Siren PR, she mastered the skills to engage the 18-35 female demographic. She led global hair giant TRESemmé in gaining more than 45,000 Facebook fans in a day and created content for more than 300,000 fans.
Charreah is a former board member for the Journalism and Women’s Symposium (JAWS), the leading organization for women journalists. She has interviewed newsmakers from Spike Lee and Sarah Jessica Parker to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She has earned awards in journalism, including a 2009 New York Association of Black Journalist award and a 2007 Hearst Award finalist. As an editor for Essence.com, she pitched and penned the popular column, Frisky Friday, offering sex insight to empower women. The feature meant even more to her coming from a family that rarely talked about sex – and a grandmother who avoided saying the word. Charreah has developed a niche in providing support and advice to career-minded women and had one of the top-viewed articles for the working woman community Levo League with four tips to spot a career-supportive guy. The National Association of Professional Women recently named her a Woman of the Year.
Yet it’s not Charreah’s writing, workshops or appearances that friends and family first ask about when seeing her. It’s her solid relationship with her partner, Stephen.

Help me find a Speaker
"I called several companies and got promises for information on speakers. GBS was the first company who delivered without a return phone call. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and the willingness they offered to help us in selecting a speaker who could fit our corporate needs. Turnaround time for answers and documents was never more than 24 hours."
