We had the good fortune of connecting with Domo The Doula and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Domo, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
What I would like my legacy to be built on would be my story. I would want young girls and women to know where I came from and where I started. I would want people to know that when you set your mind to something, anything is possible. I would want people to remember me for my determination, and my love for purpose. Which is to motive, inspire and to bring life into this world.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a certified Holistic Doula and I also own 2 stores. One located in Hollywood, Fl called the Flourished Garden. It is a spiritual + feminine shop located at #540 in the Yellow Green Farmers Market. Here you will be able to find sage, incense, body oils, feminine washes, soap + more. Our other location is located in North Miami Beach and it’s a spa and wellness Center where we offer a variety of services catering to women + healing sessions, events + more. What makes the flourished spa different from any other spa or doula service center is our variety and exclusive vendors that caters to this store front. Between taking clients, making products and mangling 2 locations. My days are pretty hectic. My most proud accomplishment of 2021 would be purchasing my first storefront. I feel like it was a great Finacial investment for me and my career. It wasn’t very easy getting to where I am now in my career but I honestly feel like it was my drive and determination towards my vision that got me to where I am today. There where many days where I felt like giving up but redirecting my focus and just trying little by little and doing what I can day by day definitely helped me a lot on my journey. A very important lesson I’ve learned along my journey is to put in work while others are not. The proof is the pudding and hard work definitely does not lie. If there could be one thing I would want the world to know about me it would be that I didn’t get here over night. It took a lot of sacrifice, pain, struggle and shedding of different layers of my identity to reach this final transform.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Some of my favorite spots in south Florida would be Diana Beach for a nice stroll. Cooper hawks for wine tasting and red rooster for high end soul food dining.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my Shoutout to the Flourished Spa, our staff and my mentor Quantae Love, Dr. Aqua Gray and my family and friends who have supported me along my journey. Since a child I’ve had a vision for my brand and I am grateful for the all the people who has motived me and kept me on track. It can be difficult to see your vision through but surrounding yourself around the right individuals definitely can help bring your dreams to reality.
