Who are our founders?
Deborah Randolph Price
Co-Founder and Empowerment Facilitator
For as long as I can remember, I wanted an older sister, someone to encourage me to be a courageous and confident girl. Even though I grew up as an only child, life’s experiences have brought women into my life with whom I have created sisterly bonds.
One of my most gratifying life experiences was being a member of a spiritual support group. For 20 years, this group of powerful, positive women inspired and supported each other through life’s events-- birthdays, weddings, births, graduations, divorces, deaths. We rose above each situation and soared with confidence. This connection taught me the power of sisterhood as a source of self-awareness, strength, courage, and confidence.
Years ago, I found my calling in teaching. What began as hands-on classroom teaching, and later management, facilitation, and presentation of educational opportunities here in the U.S., opened doors to positions overseas. My professional journey has lead me through roles in leadership training, executive coaching, instructional design, consulting, and team facilitation at academic, corporate, educational and social services environments.
Today, my role as teacher has evolved to include those of mentor and trusted advisor. I strive to encourage others to realize their unlimited potential. In December 2016, my sister-of-choice Michaele White-Risbrook and I created Soulas. It is a movement offering opportunities to unleash and awaken the greatness in others. I am “sister-ready” to inspire, empower, and serve as a conduit for personal and professional transformation!

Michaele P. White-Risbrook
Co-Founder and Empowerment Facilitator
Life coaching is a natural outgrowth of my passion, commitment and advocacy for others in my many years of work in designing and implementing empowerment, risk reduction and mentor programs, as well as rites of passage programs and ceremonies to celebrate life transitions.
My coaching philosophy is to help clients to discover and live their purpose. I will challenge clients to be more of who they were created to be, so they can reach higher levels of fulfillment in their lives. My strong spiritual faith has transformed my life and plays a powerful role in my approach to coaching. I create a safe, consistent, confidential and transformative space. I see every person as whole, powerful, resourceful, and naturally creative, and as capable of revealing their own answers.
I am blessed to continue to serve in ways that are in sync with my passions and purpose. My life affirming experiences while teaching in Zambia taught me the importance of ancestral wisdom, the power of community and the celebration of life transitions. My ‘teaching’ experience resulted in my spirit being fed in ways I had not imagined.
In 2016, I co-founded Soulas, in partnership with my sister-of-choice, Deborah Randolph Price. Our more than 20 years together as part of a spiritual support sister circle, has taught us the invaluable gifts of true sisterhood. Soulas, is the medium that has allowed me to share the power, the wisdom and the inspiration of our ancestors, as well as my own life lessons of overcoming challenges and rising higher. I remain committed to sharing the vital lessons of self-love, self-care, sisterhood, and claiming and birthing dreams.
