Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, Dr. Angela from California

Ashro Woman of the Week, Dr. Angela, a smiling black woman with hair pulled back, wearing a blue and black top.

No doubt, Angela knows how to GLITZ IT UP! Here, she’s wearing the complete sparkling package: matching suit and hat. “Fashion constantly changes, but my style is me.”

Growing up, Angela had the blessing of truly supportive parents. Angela is also a woman of faith.“I walk this life by faith and not by sight. I have to believe in the impossible and live in the expectancy.”

She has known struggle and triumph, rising above failed marriages and earning her PhD (something people said she would never do). KUDOS Angela!

Today, Angela is a caseworker for the Department of Mental Health. She enjoys brisk walks with her husband, writing books and plays—and making a mean bowl of black-eyed pea gumbo.
