We had the good fortune of connecting with Jimanekia Eborn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jimanekia, how does your business help the community or world?
All of the world has been harmed by some form of trauma. Unfortunately, one of those forms of trauma is sexual trauma. I have been in the field of mental health for the past 12 years. What I saw while working in the field was that a lot of folks need support. Often times support is unobtainable and or unaffordable. My goal with my work is to create affordable support and healing for folks. I want it to be accessible, accessibility is so important for folks. What I do helps the community because I talk to people versus talking at people. I create spaces for healing that are made for healing. I have seen many spaces that cause more harm than good. I create affordable healing spaces for folks to be seen, supported, and heard.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a survivor that has wanted to help others that went through similar things. And knows what folks are going through as well. I have the ability to create safe spaces to exhale so folks can feel. Feel what is going on and help them to figure out where they are going.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I believe that it is different per person. I would take my best friend to the korean spa. Have a lovely meal together. Maybe see a show, of some form. Or do some outdoors activity. Again it varies per person
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My family for always allowing me to be whom I am. My team Dan & Jess who get me, get my dreams, get my drive. My friends for reminding me who I have been and who I am.
