I AM Dr. Phenessa A. Gray. Welcome to my ZEN!

My purpose is to encourage, equip, and empower individuals, teams, and organizations to feel better, think better, and live better by leading trailblazers to show up as their full selves in work and life walking in truth, authenticity, and power (TAP). I serve as a resource to help you TAP into your unique talents, abilities, gifts, and strengths (TAGS) so you can own your space, show up fully, and impact your world! My research interests focus on emotional intelligence, dimensions of wellness, well-being, trauma-informed librarianship, workplace culture, values and strengths-based tools, and sharing my well-being journey with those destined to be significant and make a positive impact in the world...that means YOU!

My educational background includes earning a Bachelor of Arts degree (BA) in English from Florida State University; Master of Science in Library Services (MSLS) from Clark Atlanta University; Master of Science in Industrial-Organizational Psychology (MS/IOP) from University of Phoenix; and, Doctor of Philosophy in Business Management (PhD) from Capella University.

I practice a holistic approach to engaging in authentic conversations and fostering safe, equitable spaces. I don't shy away from challenging conversations and address the “pink elephants” within yourself and in the room to cultivate psychological safety, build community, and encourage a sense of authenticity, being, and belonging. Connect with me today to explore resources to empower you to feel better, think better, and live better so together we can create a more emotionally intelligent world one heart and mind at a time.
