Toya is the founder and CEO of Legally Bold and Woke up Worthy.  She is a coach and career expert, helping attorneys and professional women of color clarify the next steps of their careers so they never feel overworked, underpaid, and unhappy again. 


Toya holds a Juris Doctorate from the George Washington University Law School and a bachelor of science in Industrial Engineering from Rutgers University. She is licensed to practice law in New York and New Jersey. After law school, she worked for several years as a city government attorney, a prosecutor, and a solo practitioner before starting Legally Bold.


When she is not helping attorneys and professionals of color as a coach, she can be found loving up on her family and friends, working out, watching any show created by Shonda Rhimes, learning all about the wonder that is natural hair from YouTube university, or enjoying a good book.


In this episode, Toya and I talk about her journey from practicing law in the government space, to owning her own law practice and the depression and burnout she experienced, and what led her to become a coach to attorneys and professionals of color.   Toya and I dig deep into what it truly means to take care of your well-being and face your truth about what you need and want, including if the truth is that you’re not happy with where you’re at.
