Equilla is the Founder and Executive Officer of Lift One Up, a non-profit organization making an impact in the Las Vegas community through mentoring, coaching, and local partnerships. She is compelled by her Christian faith to make a positive and long-lasting impact in the lives of others by helping them see God’s good plan for their lives. However, that’s not where her story begins! As a young adult lacking confidence and having low self-esteem, her ability to believe that success would ever be within her reach was close to non-existent. Though that may have been the start it certainly isn’t where her story ends.
Many people have come into Equilla’s life providing her with mentoring, coaching, counseling and have helped her to know what it means to live out her Christian faith with courage and confidence. When you are the benefactor of others’ investment of time, kindness, and compassion the natural response should be to want to do the same for others. Lift One Up is her way of giving back!
Authentic is a word that can best be used to describe her whether within a mentoring session, a personal conversation or on a platform. She enjoys sharing wisdom and life experiences with humor and candor speaking at a variety of venues and conferences always with the message of hope and encouragement. With a heart for the mission field, she travels to Southeast Asia and Central America sharing God’s love through teaching and supplying humanitarian effort to youth, families and women affected by human trafficking.
Equilla is married to her husband; Stan and they are a blended family of three adult children and eight grandchildren. They enjoy traveling and experiencing new places together. She is an Associate Pastor at ChurchLV in Las Vegas, NV, actively involved in various Women’s organizations in the Las Vegas Valley and is an independent Certified Coach with the John Maxwell Team.
