Dr. Dravon James believes these challenges are an opportunity to embrace change and develop a mindset to create peace as we move forward and prepare for our next level of greatness. Dr. James is the founder of Everyday Peace and the author of Freedom is Your Birthright. As an Inspirational Speaker, Dravon's goal is to educate, empower, and inspire others to build the life of their dreams no matter what shows up in their lives—good, bad, or otherwise.
Her journey began in poverty on the South Side of Chicago. Though she had always dreamt of a career on the stage, Dravon went on to earn a doctorate in pharmacy from Creighton University and has worked as a pharmacist all of her adult life. Along with her medical career and theatrical aspirations, Dravon has also always had a keen interest in personal development. After reading Norman Vincent Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinking in college, she went on to make a lifelong study of the power we all have to create the life we want.
The insight she gained from her study has served her well during good times and bad. Her marriage hit the rocks, several of her pregnancies failed, her career took a tailspin for a time, and her health has been challenged, yet through it all, she has continued to follow her dreams and now teaches others to do the same. Dravon is now the happy mother of two teenagers, a wife of 23 years, a successful pharmacist, motivational speaker, author, and an actress whose career credits include a recurring role on HBO’s acclaimed The Wire, many stage plays, and independent films. She continues to inspire and teach what she knows to be the most effective tool for transforming, creating, and building a spectacular life—tapping into Everyday Peace. Her client list includes the University of the District of Columbia, New Hope World Ministries, Today’s Care Adult Daycare, Stadium Place, and Next Chapter online radio.
