What does it mean to be Empowered & Poised?
To be empowered & poised means that we possess wonderful and admirable qualities within us that are far more worthy of praise and love than simply our exteriors shells. It is to be oneself and to have the strength to be unapologetically you. Being empowered & poised means taking care of your overall well-being. This includes constantly searching out ways to become a better, stronger version of yourself, yet accepting and loving who you are at each step in the process. Being empowered & poised also requires helping yourself and others to live an empowered and poised life.
When we connect with our community supporting and sharing with one another we can truly make this world a much more beautiful place to live.
Leah Berdysz attended John Carroll University and received her Bachelor of Arts in Exercise Science and Entrepreneurship. She is extremely passionate about health, wellness, and helping others to become their strongest, healthiest, and happiest selves.
Empowered & Poised LLC originated due to her personal experience with anxiety and body image issues. She also realized the need to equip girls to be Empowered & Poised through her experiences mentoring, volunteering, talking with her own friends, and teaching an all girls physical education class.

"Empowered & Poised is an amazing program. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed attending all the classes. They were taught the wellness triangle that consists of the physical, mental and social well-being. A great supplemental program targeted to young girls.
