    MARIA G HERNANDEZ, Ph.D., Consultant

    in Business

    I am a first generation Latina born and raised in California.  My early life was based in Southern California where my immigrant parents raised me and my two older brothers.  During the first six years of my life my family lived in East Los Angeles, Watts, Pasadena and Temple City where our family home remains to this day. My family could afford to live in the suburbs of Los Angeles because  my father came to the US as a skilled machinist and the 1960's still enjoyed a robust manufacturing economy based inside our borders.  Unlike the neighborhoods just 15 miles away from our home, Temple City enjoyed safe streets, strong schools, and access to good jobs.  

    Graduate of California State University Long Beach and the University of Texas where I received degrees in psychology (BA with Distinction) and community psychology(PhD), respectively.  I finished my doctorate at age 26 in 1985 and took my first academic post as the Assistant Dean for Special Programs at a small liberal arts college in Northern California in 1986.  Four years after joining the campus, I became familiar with the painful experience of "hitting the glass ceiling".  It is one of the loudest thuds a woman might never hear.  I felt fortunate to recognize the politicized nature of my work and left the academic experience in 1994 to become an entrepreneur. I started consulting in the field of diversity and inclusion.  As a consultant and entrepreneur, I found enormous freedom to build my knowledge, leverage it to empower and engage others in the hard work that change requires.

    Since 1994 I have worked with over 150 organizations in the public, private and nonprofit sectors on topics, change management, executive development and strategic planning.

    LizyT talk to Dorian Sean international country artist

    in Country Music

    Born July 16, in Caldwell Texas, Dorian Sean is the son of a singer/pianist and a school teacher. Music has always been an inspiration in his life. “Hearing my mother play influenced me to take to music at a very young age. During my academic years, I shared the classroom with the eclectic Erykah Badu and actor Lou Diamond Phillips. Seeing both of their careers take shape,strongly encouraged me to pursue my dream to be a singer and songwriter.”
    At the age of 18, Dorian wrote and recorded his first single “Say It”. But surprisingly his first aired single was not one that denoted his love of country music, but one that exemplifies his love for God. The song was titled “Son of Man. Many radio stations denied the airplay of the song, but DJ AJ Whiteside decided every man needed a chance to prove himself and released the song over the airwaves. That day the fate of Dorian Sean Music was forever changed.
    After many years of sharing his talents in various markets with other labels and artists, Dorian decided it was time to return to his first love, country music. The new single “She Loves Me” was originally written for George Strait but Dorian decided to release it.
