As an Author and Speaker, Marke serves business entities, leaders and young people worldwide, instilling not only the mental foundations of success and motivation but more importantly the actionable strategies that will empower them to improve and thrive.

Raised in a single parent home on the eastside of Springfield, Illinois, Marke has faced many forms of adversity making them the acme of her testimony. Her story is one that highlights God’s grace. Marke shares her message of trials, tribulations and triumph with her audiences providing proof that you can’t have a testimony without a test or a message without sorting through the mess.

Marke is the President of the Max-OUT Foundation, a non-profit organization with a mission to “Maximize Opportunity, Unity and Training” in communities by teaching youth life skills, leadership training and influencing positive life choices. She has equipped and educated thousands through dynamic and thought-provoking teaching and empowerment of our youth of today and leaders of tomorrow.

Truly living through the word, Marke is an acclaimed keynote speaker, but most people know her as an ordinary woman with an extraordinary message that has helped shift the trajectory of many lives.
