ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Raychelle Meyers was born and raised in an impoverished neighborhood in Fort Worth, TX. Growing up, she and her family lived in a rundown home built by her great-grandfather. 

Raychelle watched her older sisters leave the nest as she and her brother remained with their stay-at-home mother and their entrepreneur father. Their father started several businesses, however, many of them failed; therefore, Raychelle’s family struggled, often.  

 

When business was slow, they went without lights and water. Eventually, Raychelle’s father started a successful carpentry business. Sadly, he soon became ill and passed away from Lung Cancer in the year of 1987; when he died, his business did too. Worst of all, he left his wife a widow and his children, fatherless.  

Soon after being dealt one of the worst hands known to mankind, Raychelle and her family were forced to move out of their home due to tax issues. This home in which her great-grandfather crafted was later demolished.  

Seven years thereafter, Raychelle decided to break the chain of poverty in her family by starting her first business. She knew it’d be a challenge, but as a daddy's girl who was inspired by her father's hard work and dedication, she had the gall to impact change.  

Raychelle launched her own private childcare business at the age of 23. This business was designed to care for children of busy corporate moms. Unfortunately, it was closed due to landlord property issues, but it ran successfully for 4 amazing years.  

Raychelle then began working as a Teacher's Assistant at a Head Start Program. A few months later, she was promoted from Childcare Teacher to the Corporate Office as USDA Nutrition Monitor. After dedicating 5 years to the company, she resigned in 2008 and started a youth nonprofit organization called Apples & Oranges Corp. At Apples & Oranges Corp, youth are empowered by developing good eating habits through food & nutrition, as well as leadership, and entrepreneurial skills. 

All in all, Raychelle has accumulated 20 years of experience in business. Today, she oversees an operating budget of $9 million while managing over 75 poverty-fighting programs in Texas. Besides overseeing Apples & Oranges Corp, she owns and manages 7 different companies. 

In 2016, Raychelle became a Film Producer and worked with Maximum Achievement DNA Films, a 5-Time Emmy Award-Winning film company. Her first film as a Producer was The Soul of Success: The Jack Canfield Story. She’s currently working on her first independent documentary film called Secure the Legacy, a documentary film about the life of her extraordinary mother, Mary Parker. 

Raychelle is not only the Author of Thugs In Skirts, she’s also the Author of two innovative books- Confined Minds: Break Free from Imprisoned Thoughts and Boss Girls in the Boardroom.  

 

Raychelle’s been featured on a variety of radio shows across the globe; she’s also been featured in major magazines and publications like Forbes, USA Today, Huffington Post, Voyage Dallas Magazine, and an International Magazine in China, BridgeAfrique Magazine. 

 

Raychelle’s been a guest speaker at The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). She was featured inside the University's Shorthorn Newspaper where she shared her expertise on local child hunger and how her organization fights hunger in communities across Texas. 

 

She was spotlighted on Television Show "Times Square Today" in the heart of New York Times Square, which was later aired on NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX News. 

Today, Raychelle and her husband, Ulysses, live in the DFW area of Texas. Together they have two adult children and two grandchildren. In October 2017, they adopted their two grandchildren, Julian and Legend.  

 

Despite her busy schedule, Raychelle takes time to enjoy her family because a life is a gift. She thanks God every day for His gift by doing what caters to her soul- teaching, traveling, reading, writing, photography, camping, singing & praising the Lord.
