"Dr. Kennesha Wood's conquered her road to success by the act of resilience."

Her Story

Embodied by determination and impulsivity. Dr. Kennesha Wood's conquered her road to success by the act of resilience. Raised in a single-parent home, Dr. Woods is a first-generation college student and Ph.D. graduate. Her character and lived experiences challenged her to resist the odds against her. At an early age, Dr. Woods began to set goals and noticed she became dedicated to executing them in a timely manner. Even more, she began to see several sheets of paper laying around that read “to-do list” with visible marks depicting "goal execution." Keeping up with all her tasks by remaining organized became her priority but also her path to success. Dr. Woods is eager to introduce what she considers one of her secrets to success, an act of resilience.

Dr. Woods educational background, commitment to underserved youth, adults, and families, her perseverance, and visible paths to success led her to host implicit bias and resilience trainings and workshops. Dr. Woods has a decade of experience in corrections and two decades of experience working with children and families. She is a social justice advocate, motivational influencer, trainer and facilitator.

In the Resilience Planner and Journal, Dr. Woods provides an inclusive space for individuals to practice acts of resilience by living a purposeful life.
