Audrey Elegbede, Ph.D.

Personal Development

Audrey Mouser Elegbede, Ph.D. is an empowerment coach, public speaker, diversity and inclusion consultant, and master reiki practitioner. She has her doctorate in cultural anthropology from Brown University, her coach training through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Accredited program, and she is certified in both the Usui and Holy Fire Schools of reiki.

Audrey began her work in disability advocacy, particularly autism, over 15 years ago when her eldest son was diagnosed on the autism spectrum. She has served on state and local boards supporting the autism community, lead student advocacy organizations, facilitated parent and community education programs, served as a neurodiversity advocate, and provided training to medical, education, and service professionals working with individuals with disabilities.

Parents of children with special needs experience unique challenges that parents of typically developing children do not. The burnout is real. The emotional tool is real.

Audrey is passionate about working with autism-moms to become empowered parents and advocates for their children and families. She helps parents to be driven by confidence and love rather than fear and anxiety. She supports them as they create more engagement, fulfilment and forward movement in their personal and professional lives. And she helps autism-moms reframe self-care to ensure strength and connection with themselves and others.
