Linecia Gilmore – Corporate Contract Attorney

lineciaLinecia Gilmore is a corporate contract attorney, entrepreneur and founder of, a self-empowerment movement for women and girls inspired by the life and values of First Lady Michelle Obama.  A graduate of George Washington University Law School and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee,  Linecia has held various positions within the sports, marketing and entertainment fields from managing professional athletes to organizing special events. 

While witnessing the 2008 Presidential Campaign, Linecia experienced a sense of pride and hope that transformed into a vision to empower women and girls around the world.  In her view, “Michelle Obama is an inspiration to all women, she exemplifies the American Dream and she has proven that the Dream is attainable.  We can no longer stand aside and complain about the disadvantages of the world, we must claim our place and move forward with the determination to change the world!” 

In January 2009 with prayer, determination and faith, Linecia launched  Her goal was to inspire women and girls to empower themselves through self-empowerment awareness, community service, political awareness and professional development.  Through weekly blog posts covering various issues affecting women and girls, a weekly feature of an everyday woman doing extraordinary things, discussions on political news, and participation in community service activities, Linecia is pursuing her goal one day at a time.

In her own words, “When you decide to live your life with the goal of empowering your community, others will take note and join in the empowerment of the world.”

Currently, Linecia plans to expand her vision with the goal of launching an empowerment t-shirt line for women and girls, motivational speaking, participation in empowerment events, and one day writing an empowerment book to continue her dream of spreading the gift of self-empowerment.  She is inspired by the present and excited about the future of living a better life!
