Having immigrated from Kingston, Jamaica to South Florida as a young girl greatly influenced the way Simone Russell processed the world around her. Passionate about empowering her fellow woman, connecting the Caribbean and African diaspora; A self-described “creator & educator” this social butterfly enjoys bringing people together for a purpose. You may spot her dancing on stage at The Shrine, greeting women at the door at Glow Day Party, but most likely you will catch her bouncing around her events being our resident “Hostess with the mostess”.

Charity and “The Culture” are close to her heart so she works closely with local Caribbean-American charities Smiley’s Voice Foundation for Stroke Awareness and Shak’s Hope Foundation for Sickle Cell Awareness, two medical issues many in the diaspora suffer from.
