Empowering the Community
Elisha Henderson is a Mother, Entrepreneur, Community Advocate for the African American Community as well as a Health and Wellness Coach for our Veterans at the VA Hospital. Originally from the Bay Area, Elisha came to Fresno to attend California State University, Fresno. She graduated with a B.S. in Criminology and then later obtained her Master’s in Human Resource Management with an emphasis on Organizational Change. She currently serves as the President of the Fresno State African American Alumni and Friends Club. This is just one of the ways that Elisha tries to help past, current and future students of Fresno State.
As the Owner and Chief Editor of Final Look Editing she works diligently to provide quality and affordable editing services to a wide range of customers. No matter if it is a self-published book, a thesis, dissertation, or even a Facebook post, Final Look Editing will get the job done. Recently she was honored to work with Fresno County Superintendent of Schools to assist in the writing of the Community Voices Moving Towards Excellence. This document opens the doors for the community to come together to fight for our African American students.
The entrepreneur that Elisha is recognizes the importance of teaching her two daughters how to be in a position of ownership and not only an employee. Under her management her youngest daughter Evonne Henderson (12 years old) is the owner of E-Money Entertainment and provides professional DJ services to the Fresno Community. At the same time her eldest daughter Elana Henderson (15 years old) will be launching her company E-Magine Social Media Management later this year.
Ms. Henderson saw the need for increased involvement in her children’s academic careers as racism and anti-Black behavior was going unpunished. This involvement went from being on the PTA at both Baird Middle School and Bullard High School, to acting as the Chair of the African American Parent Committee at Bullard High School and being a member of Black Education Collaboration Organized Network (BECON). Add her participation in Black Leaders Organized for Change (BLOC) and you can guess that Elisha is continually working to build a better future for not only her children but all of ours.
At the Fresno VA Hospital, Elisha is a Social Science Program Coordinator for the Whole Health Program under the Chief of Staff. It is in this capacity that she works with Veterans and staff to change the culture from focusing on what is the matter with a Veteran to what matters to them. Passionate about her work she has been certified in Healing Touch and is working towards certification in Tai Chi. Through Health and Wellness Coaching she is able to help both Veterans and her co-workers with goal setting and alternate forms of treatment that are complimentary to their traditional care. Services such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic services, Massage Therapy, Tai Chi, Healing Touch and Yoga are only a few that Elisha assists with.
Elisha Henderson’s passion for helping people and drive to be a blessing to others show in her commitment to excellence and are why she is a Black Magical Woman.
