During her entrepreneurs’ ventures, Alysha noticed a lack of women-led groups. She took this as an opportunity to co-develop Fierce Women Onboard, a women’s empowerment group which has over 40 members. October 2020, they celebrated four years and plan to formalize the group into a 501c3 Non-profit. This group aims to cultivate a community of women that empowers, supports, and uplifts one another.
