About Our Founder & Chief Empowerment Officer
Ambee Stephens, a passionate and driven leader, is the founder and CEO of EmpowHERment, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women through growth, connection, and inspiration. With a background in civil service and extensive experience in non-profit work, Stephens has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by women in today's society.
Inspired by her own journey of losing her father and realizing the struggles of women around her, Stephens founded EmpowHERment with the goal of creating a supportive and inclusive community for women to thrive. Under her leadership, the organization has grown to become a major player in the nonprofit sector, providing women with the resources and opportunities they need to succeed.

With her unwavering commitment and tireless efforts, Stephens has become a role model and an inspiration to many, and EmpowHERment has become a powerful force for positive change.
With education at the core of what she believes, and being the oldest of 9, Stephens wanted to make sure her siblings knew just how important education is. Stephens holds two bachelor's degrees, one in community leadership and one in paralegal studies. She holds a Masters of Nonprofit Management from the University of Central Florida (UCF). She holds several certificates including Fundraising and Grant Writing from UCF. Stephens is currently attending UCF to obtain her Ph.D. in Sociology, with which she hopes to educate women on finding their purpose.
As a leader, Stephens is dedicated to using her voice and platform to advance the cause of women everywhere, and she continues to work tirelessly to create a brighter future for all women, including intentionally running her consulting business, for those who are looking to start or amplify their charitable cause.
Personally, Ambee is a believer in Jesus, A wife, daughter, sister, aunt, Godmother, and friend. When she is not shaking tables at EmpowHERment, she is traveling with her husband or spending time with her friends/family
