Danielle Boyd


I'm Danielle. I'm a wife, mother, and educator residing in Durham, NC. I am here to share my take on life through my own lens. I hope that my writing inspires you to live the life you've been given with purpose. Thank you for reading. Feel free to leave questions and comments as I would love to interact with you!

Greetings! I’m Danielle, the 2nd Ford G.I.R.L. Im a wife of seven years to Carlos and a mom of three years to Madison. These two roles are my greatest blessing and my greatest challenge. I’ve experienced major ups and downs with both but I’ve learned to shake the dust off of my feet and keep it moving through this thing called life.  I believe that my struggles have enabled me to show compassion to others who may be experiencing similar issues but I also believe that I’ve been given the gift to help motivate others to move beyond what may be holding them hostage.

I’m a 36 year old educator of 14 years in the North Carolina Public Schools system. Being an educator has afforded me the opportunity to teach, facilitate, train, coach, develop, and create. I am currently an elementary school Administrator and Transformation Coach. Want to know more about that? Just ask! I’m also a lifelong learner and I drive the people closest to me nuts with my quest to figure out which degree I need next. I hold two degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Go Heels! And I will acquire an advanced license in educational leadership from Gardner-Webb University at the end of this year. Go Bulldogs!

Becoming a blogger has ignited a passion in me that I believe always existed. I now have an ongoing outlet to share my thoughts and interests which I would say are ever-evolving as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Some of my mainstays include: reading, online shopping, shoe shopping, shopping in general, coordinating opportunities for folks with like minds to collaborate, and spending time with family and friends.  I have always been committed to educating others, encouraging others, and helping others to grow into AND enjoy the skin that they are in. I believe that my experiences past and present qualify me as a survivor and I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to share with you along with my sisters!
