AUTHOR. SPEAKER. ENTREPRENEUR. CONSULTANT. EXECUTIVE COACH.
Let LaFarris Empower YOU!
With more than 20 years’ experience in Early Childhood Education and Family Support, LaFarris Risby is a woman with renown credentials and a tangible success story to prove it. She is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, consultant and executive coach. Still, what’s most captivating about LaFarris is the testimony behind her passion and commitment for early childhood education and family well-being. Some of LaFarris’ most life shaping experiences include the grief and resentment of losing her mother at five years old, becoming a teenage mother at 15, giving birth to a premature child, being married to her womanizing and abusive high school sweetheart, and even homelessness. However, LaFarris believed that she could overcome life’s obstacles, and through total surrender of her life to Jesus Christ, her dreams that once seemed impossible, became possible.
