"Create your own niche" is Darlena Swann's motto, the founder and visionary of Boss Lady Enterprise, writer, speaker and former freelance model. She's a native of Pinehurst, North Carolina. In addition to North Carolina, she has lived in California, Massachusetts, and Ohio.

This talented individual received her undergraduate B.S. degree from East Carolina University and graduated Cum Laude from Strayer University with a Master of Business Administration. She has several years of experience in community volunteer service and a track record of youth involvement with 4-H program, Moore Buddies Governor's one-on-one mentoring program, youth advisor for civil rights, and a Girl Scouts program volunteer and leader. She additionally has five years of managerial experience in healthcare administration.

Darlena was inspired to envision Boss Lady Enterprise in response to her loss of four contract jobs in the same year, which caused some financial hardship and despair. Instead of focusing on the problem she began to focus more on solutions. She's always been fueled by social change and enjoys working within the community. Her passion for public service and youth mentorship was inspired by her mother who was an educator and community leader.

Despite the challenges she has faced in the job market, Darlena always wanted the opportunity to become her own boss and focus on doing something that's rewarding and provides fulfillment. What really motivates her is finding ways to reinvent herself while experiencing flexibility and freedom. Doing her spare time she enjoys traveling, reading, scrapbooking, yoga, aerobics, playing tennis, and listening to Jazz music.

Currently, Darlena is a proud supporter of the Girl Scouts, breast cancer awareness, and an advocate for health & fitness.  Also, she believes community volunteer service isn't  just about giving back for a cause, but willing to make a difference.
