I’m Tracy Chapital, affectionately known as “Lady Chap.” I am proud that my vision illuminates a diverse group of women spanning multi-generations with increased capacity to embrace individual strengths for well-being, growth, and life-enhancing opportunities for every chapter of their lives. Women’s voices need to be heard, listened to and respected. They are a movement as a community of women empowering women to be their best selves. What inspired me to launched HNC in November of 2016? I was finding myself at a loss with lack of self-fulfillment and purpose to only discover other women transiting through their lives were also experiencing the same thing in terms of feeling a sense of emptiness. Like many other women, baby boomers transitioning into a new phase have hit a brick wall with career choices and limitations, and I was feeling disconnected from myself and any new possibilities for my life. I decided to channel all my experience, passion and life lessons into a self-created foundation, Her Nexx Chapter, Inc.
My desire is to connect women on many levels as we build our membership chapters globally. Yes, I have given myself permission to “dream BIG,” offering wellness programs, style of life resources, and online empowerment courses. I want to share my unique perspective that speaks to women all over the world by touching their intellect from my heart, my soul, and my spirit. Our climate is changing. The #METOO movement has created a huge shift of thought, accountability and possibilities for women. I feel women have been shackled mentally for decades, consumed by others’ agendas and expectations. Her Nexx Chapter celebrates a community of women with a voice that will elevate my journey and yours, as we move into that next phase or better yet, our next chapter.
Angie Grimes joined Her Nexx Chapter as the eChapter VP. She leads the team of Subject Matter Experts who create and cultivate a virtual supportive network of women. The beauty of this organization is it aligns with Angie’s personal vision to create unity in the world, coupled with the joy she has for mentoring and elevating women. In addition to her managing skills, Angie’s path has led her to assist others as a Spiritual Architect. Through her direction, she enlightens individuals on their journey to becoming the highest version of themselves. She guides with a gentle de-conditioning process that reconnects them to their true essence, before they adopted an imposed belief system. It is with this information that they can then reconnect to the inherent gifts, qualities, and talents that their Divine self chose as ‘tools’ for their highest evolution.
