Dr. Thomisha M. Duru, President



Dr. Thomisha M. Duru is an educator and storyteller who is passionate about eliminating the silent suffering of women in crisis through her organization Women Inspirational and Self-Empowerment (WISE), which provides support and resources to help them rediscover and repurpose their lives.

After a series of tragic incidents, Duru experienced over three years of depression and suicidal thoughts; but after working with a Christian counselor, she eventually learned how to reclaim her life—and now she relishes every opportunity to help others do the same.
