Who is Pache Felton? “I am a survivor, a student of life, a motivator, a high school dropout, and a resilient and powerful black woman,” she describes.

On the day she was born her father was murdered. As a young adult, she endured the impact of not having a dad, as it left her feeling alone and abandoned. “Witnessing the bond little girls and women had with their fathers was bittersweet for me. I always wondered what my relationship would have been like if I had a dad. However, I did not allow unwarranted feelings to influence my life. I was loved beyond measure and nurtured by strong, single women. My grandmother was the foundation of my family. When she transitioned, my foundation was gone, and I was lost. I was only 13 years old. I dropped out of school once I reached the tenth grade and headed down a destructive path,” she says.

Life would continue to happen for Pache. After becoming a single parent at the age of 19, her life shifted. She still did things that a typical 19-year-old would do; however, there was always a sense of her needing to get her life together. She shares, “I pivoted at age 26 and took control of my educational realm. Today, I hold a M.S. in Organizational Leadership, M.A in Curriculum and Instruction, a B.A. in Psychology, and a M.S. pending in Educational Psychology.” Talk about a pivot.

Pache is also a business owner. Her company, My Insight Coaching stands on the motto, “Be the Best You!” My Insight Coaching was created as a safe haven for Pache’s clients, and its mission is to impact and inspire women, men, teens, and families who seek to improve themselves. Many of the areas that Pache focuses on are Building Self-Awareness, Building Self-Confidence, Improving Work Ethic, Becoming Self-Reliant, Gaining Perspective On Life, Maintaining A Positive Mindset, Discovering Passion and Purpose, Improving Personal Specific Skills, Gaining A Deeper Level Of Learning, Communicating More Effectively, Establishing And Taking Action Towards Achieving Goals, Learning How To Live With Pain And Sorrow, and Taking Responsibility and Accountability For Actions and Commitments.

She’s also the Co-founder of Harlem Girls Inc, which was established in 2018. Its motto is “There is more in you!’ The organization assists women and youth by conducting self-esteem workshops, leadership training, business seminars, teaching entrepreneurship skills, and helping individuals become authors. The organization also provides goods and services for sale such as books and apparel.

My Insight Coaching is designed to assist all who seek to look at life through a different lens. Pache shares, “I want to create and provide opportunities for the less fortunate. I know firsthand what the consequences of growing up in an impoverished district is like, and where the required educational means are not provided. The kind of places where students are not heard, and teachers are imprudent about the student’s future.”

Pache says her company began many years ago. “I have been motivating and encouraging others for years and the funny thing is I was not looking to make a business out of it. Yet, I always found myself supporting and pushing people to live out their dreams. I figured, why not make it official, so I attained a license to become a Certified Professional Coach,” she says.

Through every challenge and reward, Pache shares she finds inspiration in knowing that God loves her. “Without his grace and mercy, I do not know where I would be. The fact that He uses someone like me, with all my cracks and scars, keeps me humble and in a state of gratitude. People will take what they see at face value, not understanding it’s expensive to be you. I often tell people I am made up of a bunch of little pieces,” she says.

Even more, she has a genuine love for helping others. “I love to see the lightbulb come on for my clients and whoever I impact. When they discover what they are made of and they begin to live out their purpose, that’s rewarding for me. The fact that I can be a part of someone’s transformation fuels me and helps me to persevere. I am also pushed by the love of my daughter. She is the reason I began to evolve. Once I understood the responsibility, I was tasked with taking care of another human being, I knew it was no longer about me and my wants, but about this person I created,” she says.

In the future, Pache says she is looking forward to working in the field of psychology and contributing to research and theories that influence how people residing in inner cities are educated. “My goal is to provide educational means to individuals who reside in poverty-stricken areas by creating an atmosphere that is conducive for creativity and innovation. My vision as a psychology practitioner-scholar is to work as a Program Development Specialist and collaborate with other practitioners, educators, and administrators. This will help me to obtain insight on what is desirable to help students succeed academically and professionally,” she says.
