(And what on earth qualifies me to host such a powerful event?)


I'm Detra M. Trueheart, wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend and lover of Rotties.  I am all about family, ministry, marriage, leadership and living your best life... but not at the expense you losing yourself.

I am a faith and life purpose mentor to successful yet busy and overwhelmed women of faith who spend lots of time pouring into others but not so much themselves. My company, TrueheartSpeaks Enterprises, is a lifestyle management and empowerment firm where I help women like you get clear, show up authentically, get rid of the excuses, and do what it takes to live purposefully, grow spiritually, and lead authentically.

The most important thing I want you to know is that I am just like you.


I am a woman with many hats and many roles and every now and then I forget to take time out to allow myself to be poured back into.  You see, I come from a culture of strong women who don't always ask for help when they need it, let alone tell you when something's wrong. Most times we also don't take time to know and understand who we are outside of those many hats and roles we play.


On a mission to change that, I created this event.  An event where you will have time at the end of your work week to be in the safe space of other women who get it, get you, and who also want a moment where they can just BE.

You see... I know what it’s like to achieve success, receive awards and accolades, and still be unfulfilled.  As a national dance competitor, former Miss Buffalo, Miss Western New York, two-time third runner up in the Miss America New York State competition, 1st runner up to Miss Black World all before the age of 25, I learned that success doesn’t always guarantee happiness or PURPOSE.

Also knowing first hand what it means to endure job loss, financial strain, family challenges, and heartbreak, I understand the power of aligning yourself with God's will and creating your own reality with the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Using my more than twenty-five combined years of pageantry, performing arts, leadership, empowerment, and personal development expertise, I am your ‘go to’ girl for faith, life purpose, authenticity, and women & girls leadership and empowerment.


I am founder of my not for profit, the Young Miss Buffalo Pageant: Scholarship & Enrichment Program.  This is a 16-week girls scholarship and enrichment program that culminates into our annual scholarship pageant.  For the past 18 years, much of what I have taught the youth that I worked with, I now teach and share with my speaking, coaching and consulting clients.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, a Master of Public Administration and a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling. This basically means I like running things, being in charge and helping people solve and work through life's challenges.  It also means I have put in my time, talent and treasure ($$) to be equipped to share the powerful and transformational content you will be receiving at the event.

  • Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE but are transferable ONLY if requested to 10 days in advance. So if you buy your ticket but you’re no longer able to attend, you’re more than welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend. The deadline to transfer tickets is March 13, 2018.

  • If the event sells out, want to be placed on the waiting list? YES! -- then email to be placed on the waitlist (because if someone can’t make it, you just might be next in line).


  • This is a LIVE event and will not be streamed online.​

  • Because this is an intimate intensive and group experience, one on one coaching will not take place at this event. However, there will be opportunities for a few select women to receive hot seating coaching at the event. Everyone will have an opportunity to interact with Detra.

  • Dress Code/Attire: Since I know many of you will be coming from work, come in whatever is most comfortable. Well except your pj’s. We will have to plan another event for those. ;). 

  • Vendor & Sponsor opportunities are available. Please email for more information. There are only three vendor spots available.


Join me for a half-day transformational and life changing experience. This is an extraordinary opportunity for you to accompany me for an intimate gathering where you get to encounter a real, authentic, & healing conversation about what it means and what it take to unLearn. This WILL NOT be your 'average' or 'regular' women's seminar or workshop.

Finally, an event designed for women who constantly pour out, but never take the time to allow themselves to be poured back into. Make time to refill your cup.

"This presentation confirmed the things that I knew I needed to do and the things that are already in process.  We need things like this on a continuous basis to encourage, uplift, and re-establish women who are in need of confirmation."


"I completely loved the entire event.  The location was beautiful.  The wine punch was delish. lol.  As ALWAYS, I hung on to every word you spoke.   

God knew what He was doing when He lead me to the event that we met at.  I could sit and listen to you for days. Your words give me hope and the desire to be a better person."

"Excellent Experience! I realized I don't have to keep living the same life I always have. Today is a new day, a new time, a new season, a new chapter in my life.  I am learning to BE!"
