Dr. Diva Verdun

America’s #1 Personal Transformation & Empowerment Guru

L.I.F.E. Transformer
Empowerment Guru
Speaker – Trainer – Counselor

While born in Madrid, Spain to American parents, Diva Verdun grew up in a small community in Fort Worth, TX.  The eldest daughter of two, she grew up under parents with high ideals and astute business savvy.  No stranger to  challenges, she has struggled through tremendous odds, endured life as a battered woman and survived the mental and financial anguish of a single parent on welfare.

Dr. Diva Verdun - Empowerment Coach, Speaker, Minister, Spiritual Pratitioner & CounselorWhile attending the University of Houston, she studied Graphic Communications and Business Technology, until her father was killed in a horrible car accident during her junior year causing her to abruptly quit school only 9 hours shy of graduation. The grief of his loss pushed her into a deep depression riddled with self-doubt that would later prove to be a twenty year life struggle with grief, low self-esteem and co-dependency, placing a severe strain on her relationship with her mother.

Plagued with low-self esteem and fear, her life moved from domestic violence, welfare and family issues to poverty and homelessness. After suffering a near fatal blow to her face, she sustained a triple compound fracture resulting in reconstructive surgery. While recuperating from the  surgery, and on the brink of suicide, she found the strength to seek a new spiritual path, which would become a powerful journey of awakening and self-discovery that would lead her to a unique formula for self-mastery and elevated self-esteem.

In search of her own career path she got her real estate and life insurance licenses and even studied for the National Association of Securities  Dealers Series 7 exam. As an investment banker, she climbed to the level of Vice President of Sales and Business Development at a business acquisition firm in Irvine, CA, but would later leave this position to form the National Alliance of Black Entrepreneurs. Motivated by the devastation and civil unrest, which erupted after the Rodney King verdict in Los Angeles, California, she used the National Alliance to assist in the re-building and resurgence of small minority owned businesses by sharing business principles, resources and networking opportunities with minorities and women, encouraging them to start a business or expand an existing venture.  She developed a business manual and seminar entitled ‘Vital Keys for Business Survival’, created a national minority business newsletter entitled ‘Focus on Minority Business’, lectured and counseled with women on welfare and developed alliances with Fortune 500 Corporations.  She also developed programs with banking institutions to reduce loan criteria for minorities, held procurement instructional courses for responding to minority RFPs in conjunction with Walt Disney’s MBE director, and developed a seminar entitled ‘A Cultural Time Capsule, How Our Ancestors Were Exploited for Their Entrepreneurial Talents’.Dr. Diva PhD

Her entrepreneurial interest spill over into film and entertainment and she is one the Executive Producers for “Eye See Me”, a true coming of age story about an at-risk youth that changed his life and became a bounty hunter for the FBI.  Diva is an ordained metaphysical  minister, practitioner and holistic success coach, and holds degrees from the University of Sedona.

She has appeared as a guest speaker and trainer at various career trade shows, business networking functions, organizations and churches and has been honored by the NAACP in tribute to Women Serving the Community.  She was acknowledged by the US Census Bureau for her work in recruiting and employing the highest number of people in a socio-economically challenged community, and co-organized the 1st and only International Simultaneous Multi-Rally for Barack Obama entitled One Voice for Change Across America in April 2008, which included 58 international cities from Zurich and Milan to Los Angeles and New York City.

  1. Christhood, Buddhahood, etc. all are, as we are, of the depths of consciousness, discovering identity with that silent source of the universe, cosmos and divinity, that, which can not be named.

  7. God bless you for helping women become independent, so many women, just resort to being in loveless marriages for financial support basically prostituting themselves. Its not just in the middle east, all around the world women do this. It is a scary world out there. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration. I love the quote: “God is Able, he is able.” I believe in you/us!! together we can!
