Jacquetta Y. Parhams, Ph.D. had worn many hats. Among other functions, primarily, she is an author, teacher, life management facilitator, and she is a Christian minister, metaphysician and life coach.
Dr. Parhams was born in Los Angeles, California. Because her father was in the military, her family lived abroad for a number of years and she was exposed to other cultures, which gave her a broad worldview. At the age of eight, she read a story about Harriet Tubman, and that shaped her perceptions of race relations and human nature. She has a strong shero in Harriet Tubman.
When her father retired back to Los Angeles, Jacquetta Y. Parhams was entering California State University, Long Beach. It wasn’t until she took a Black Studies class that she really began to truly understand her heritage and culture. Consequently, she began to search further for her place in the “work” to be done for Black people.
In 1994, after majoring in Black Studies and English and earning a Master of Divinity in Theology from Fuller Seminary, she began Rhythm of the Drum: Our Wholistic Magazineto help disseminate much needed information about wholistic health throughout the Black community. She then began EFFICIENTIME Life Management to help people manage themselves better with respect to time and health.
At the time Dr. Parhams had the emotional rape experience, she had was waiting for her "Moor" and thought she had met him. As she soon found out, she hadn't. But this experience led to the writing of her second book. She unabashedly uses whatever experience and knowledge she encounters to help other people.
Currently, Dr. Parhams speaks, teaches and preaches upon request. She supports various organizations in Tuskegee, Alabama. She is also a supporter of Northwood Appold Community Academy, a public charter school in Baltimore, Maryland.
Dr. Parhams is an author, teacher, life management facilitator, and she is a Christian minister, metaphysician and life coach. She is especially interested in uplifting and empowering Black women, but she speaks to all groups. Contact her to speak to your group today!
