LaToya Polk Robinson

PRESIDENT

TREASURER

 

Co-founder of Women of Purpose Group, Inc. LaToya has a passion for empowering women to become who they are destined to be. Having been in the position of being lost and not knowing why she was put on this earth drove her to find her purpose and push others to find theirs. 

 

LaToya serves as a women's LifeGroup leader at her local church and numerous volunteer opportunities in the community. She has worked in the banking and finance industry for most of her career, holding multiple insurance and investment licenses. In 2020, she stepped out on faith to pursue her passion and purpose by starting an Image Consulting business, ClosetInvite. LaToya holds a bachelor's in Business Management with a specialization in Communication from Liberty University.

Roshauna Clarke

Program Director 

"I grew up with a passion for the arts, participating in plays, gymnastics, and singing in the church choir. These experiences instilled in me a love for creativity and self-expression. Additionally, I had the opportunity to work as a camp counselor, where I discovered my joy in guiding and inspiring others.

 

As a military wife, my journey has taken unexpected turns. Living in Germany, Colorado Springs, and now Dover, Delaware, has exposed me to diverse cultures and taught me the value of adaptability. While I initially enjoyed the nomadic lifestyle, I prioritized stability for my children's wellbeing.

 

Driven by my fascination with business, I pursued an MBA. Project management became my focus, as I recognized the crucial role processes play in both personal and professional success. I believe that well-developed processes can make or break a business.

 

My commitment to personal health arose from being borderline diabetic. Refusing to let that dictate my life, I discovered my passion for running. Taking control of my health became a direct way to influence my overall well-being.

 

Throughout my life, my spirituality has been a cornerstone. From a young age, I found solace and guidance in my faith. It has kept me grounded and provided clarity in times of uncertainty.

 

In summary, my diverse background in the arts, military life, business, fitness, and spirituality has shaped me into a well-rounded individual. I continue to embrace new experiences and grow, knowing that each chapter of my life contributes to the person I am today.”
