Tristan Myles, Facilitator
Born in South Los Angeles, Tristan grew up in the Santa Monica school district where her mother enrolled her in an immersion program. This program taught the entire curriculum in Spanish making her the only bilingual member of her family. After high school, she decided to move to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing from Southern University and A&M College. Once a graduate, Tristan began to work in the East Baton Rouge Parish school system, and it was then that she realized she had a passion for education. This fueled her desire to go back to school and obtained a Master of Science degree in Adult Education with a specialty in Leadership Development from Louisiana State University and A&M College in 2010. Her experience ranges from many fields such as hospitality, event planning, home health, and management training.
Tristan is now an independent contractor licensed through the State of California, Texas, and Louisiana to discuss financial matters such as budgeting, insurance, and investments that help families to send their children to college, retire well, and get out of debt. Her message is especially impactful for those desiring to move up their career ladder whether as an entrepreneur or an employee, however she works closely with the youth as well. She also leads seminars on subjects like: building better relationships, strategic goal setting, and managing conflict and change. One of her most prized accomplishments is the work she did and impact she made on disadvantaged boys and girls ages 9-18 while participating in a scholarship program with Boys Hope Girls Hope in inner city Baton Rouge, LA.
After returning to Los Angeles, Tristan decided to focus on serving her community by branching out and working with organizations like Great Beginnings for Black Babies, Vermont Slauson Economic Development Center, and The Positive Results Corporation to name a few. She is an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc and West Angeles Church of God in Christ. Tristan strives every day to make her family proud, spread educational awareness to her community, and fulfill her God given purpose.
