Santia was born and raised in Durham NC. The youngest of three children and has a degree in Information Systems and I am a Cyber Security Project Manager. A serial entrepreneur Santia has a passion for changing the world, in her words. “One Vagina at a time.”
Santia started in the Personal Care / Spa industry because of a friend’s infertility challenges. Researching for countless hours, and studying under several holistic practitioners in the industry she was able to learn various techniques that she could serve her client’s mind, body, and spirit.
It is her desire to take the stigma away from the woman’s vaginal health and create confidence to transform her life, by assisting her in facing her past, therefore, empowering her for her future. In addition to removing the stigma around a woman’s vagina, Santia through her practice at Petals and Stems Spa is working tirelessly to bring awareness in the black and brown communities of the importance of men’s prostate health.

If you had to describe yourself in one sentence, what would it be and why?
Santia is a passionate and inspiring individual who is committed to making a positive impact on the world.
Because I am motivated by a strong belief that everyone has the right to be respected and empowered to make their own decisions. I am an advocate for reproductive health and gender equality and is dedicated to helping people feel confident and safe in their bodies. I’ve been told that my energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and I am always looking for new ways to make a difference. I tirelessly advocate for those who have been silenced and I am dedicated to making sure everyone can live their best life.
You grew up in Durham NC, How did your surroundings impact who you are today?
Growing up in Durham was a great experience. I’ve seen how much can be accomplished when people come together with a common vision and sense of purpose. Community is such a powerful force for positive change, and I’m grateful to have been a part of such a vibrant and supportive environment.
If you could tribute your passion for entrepreneurship and wellness specifically, who and what would you tribute it to?
My passion for entrepreneurship came from my desire to have freedom. I’m not chasing money; I am chasing the freedom that comes with having money. No one likes living another person’s dream; build your own. My grandson Blaise will walk into the empire that his GoGo (grandmother in Zulu) built for him, and he can continue to grow my legacy.
