Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Munaluchi Bride Magazine
She has a B.S. degree in Medical Technology and worked for major pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies, including Johnson and Johnson. She had never seen a bridal magazine for black women and so she decided (together with her husband) to start one. With no prior experience within the publishing industry, they launched Munaluchi Bride Magazine in 2010 and obtained national distribution within major retailers in the United States, including Target and Barnes and Noble. The rapid success of her magazine has landed her interviews on NBC, ABC, and WPIX NY.
Her TEDxEuston 2013 talk is both inspiring and a powerful testament to the ripple effect of pursuing our dreams. A strong believer in the power of images, she says; "we should think about the images that we are showing our children. Images are very powerful."
Jackie's vision and determination to fill this void is what gave her the strength and willpower to break into and positively impact an industry she knew very little about. Watch her talk HERE and share with anyone wondering if they should follow their dream.
