Today we’d like to introduce you to Chassity Heard.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. A 33-year-old Houston native, and a proud mother to my 8-year-old adorable daughter. I attended Westbury High School and received a track and field scholarship to Texas Southern University.
I later graduated in 2010 from the University of Texas at M.D. Anderson with a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Laboratory Science, and a Master’s Degree in Health Administration from University of Phoenix in 2013. I have been working in the health care field since 2008. I was featured in the “Women of Distinction” magazine for my career accomplishments in the health care field. I began using my years of expertise to pour into students pursuing their bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration as an Adjunct Professor at Belhaven University.
While balancing my career and motherhood, I decided to turn my passion for baking brownies into a business called “The Brownie Spot” in 2016. This gives me the opportunity to share my love for brownies with the world, and I promise “Your Heart will melt with every bite!” When I am not baking, I am busy being a mentor and encouraging other single mothers to find their purpose. In 2017, I was inspired to develop, I Am GIRL, an organization that reminds women and young girls that they are Gifted, Intelligent, Relevant, and fearless.
My passion for single mothers grew as I began to face challenges and overcome different obstacles as a single mother. I was inspired to tell my story as co-author in my most recent book “Power Single Moms.” My mission is to empower teen girls and young women to overcome their fears, embrace their God-given identity and purpose on this earth. My most recent accomplishment is being nominated for the 2019 H-Town Hero Award!
Has it been a smooth road? It has not been a smooth road by any means! I still encounter obstacles along the way, but I believe those obstacles only make us stronger. In my book, “POWER Single Mom,” I talk about the obstacles I faced throughout college up until now. While attending Texas Southern University, I became pregnant in my junior year. This altered my plans for applying for the Clinical Laboratory Science program at TxS. I had to quit the track team and solidify a plan.
