Born just outside of Atlanta, Dr. Bonita J. Gay-Senior cycled in and out of her grandmother's home and the projects. She was subjected to her parents' unhappiness from a very early age. When her mother finally left her father, Bonita thought perhaps she'd finally have the relationship with her mother that she'd always wanted.
Instead, she was subjected to her mother's neglect and then abused by her brothers. This went on for years before she began seeking refuge in food and men. Over time, she became unhealthier and unhappier. She eventually decided it was time to break the spell and finally shake off her family's negative influence.
Bonita sought out spiritual groups that could help her make her personal life as successful as her career life...and it worked. In her time with her groups, she learned more about herself and her family's history than ever before, and she began working toward putting the pieces of her life in order.
Today, she has two sons and a doctorate in education, and she is happier than ever. This is her journey, and she'd love to share it with you.
