Thanks for being here!

Hey there! I am Dr. Sherunda Simone. Christian, wife, and mother of 5 in a blended family who believes coffee is daily must!


For more than a decade, I have been a practicing full time Podiatrist and have a Masters Degree in Public Health. After graduating from medical school in North Shores, FL, I moved to Pittsburgh, PA where I met and married the love of my life, Laraun Josey. We have been married for 11 years now and we have 5 lovely children (3 together + 2 bonus kiddos). For a few years I worked in private practice settings doing in office and surgical reconstruction.

Now, I see in office patients exclusively and still perform outpatient surgeries for our nation's Veterans in Southern, GA. I think of it as a way to give back to those who have done so much for our country and my family via their bravery and sacrifice. 

When I am not working on business with my husband, having game night with my family or shopping for home décor, I enjoy sharing my Christian lifestyle with others and sharing my love for Christ through speaking events, my podcast or on social media.

My Story

Here's why I do what I do (outside of being a doctor).

In 2006, I was in the middle of medical school. One evening, I fell asleep on my couch in my living room while studying/watching TV. One thing that I like to do is always have something near by to jot down ideas or instructions I hear from God. In 2006, while laying on my couch, I was awakened from my sleep. Holy Spirit told me to begin a motivational speaking company - E.S.T.E.E.M. Motivational Speaking LLC was the outcome. 

Once I took some notes, I got to work. I called my mother and asked her to create the company for me (she is a lawyer). From then until now, I have been devoting my talent and love of speaking to EMPOWER STRENGTHEN TEACH ENRICH ENERGIZE and MOTIVATE others. While my vocational training is in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, my passion is serving others with my gift of gab. According to my parents, I began speaking clearly at 9 months old and I have not stopped since!

With my medical background and passion for personal development, I have self published a medical training soft skills book, More Than Medicine: What They Don't Teach You In Medical School and have also authored 2 other professional development books.

Over the years, I have given numerous Commencement Speeches (domestic and international), Keynote addresses for corporate, medical and educational organizations. 

As time moved on, I found another passion and outlet for the creative speaker in me. Now, as a Christian Lifestyle influencer and Podcaster, my goal is to use my social platforms to be salt and light, as we are directed in Matthew 5. I believe Christians are to be those who are adding to our community in a visible, positive, unapologetic way for Christ, in this world. Jesus called us to add flavor and to help preserve the moral fabric of our world; just as salt makes food tasty and helps to preserve food from spoilage. I I am always eager to share the gospel with others, and share life transforming personal development truths with any and everyone I can. If you need a speaker who is candid, colorful, transparent and impacting -  book me!

Though my hands and mouth are always full - never a dull moment - I make it a priority to love on my family. Our home is filled with laughter and noise! My children, they are my pride and joy in this life. They make me want to be a better person. I am so grateful for my marriage and my husband, so I strive to be a good helpmate and submit to him, as we both submit to God and each other. My life is imperfect and hard at times. Nonetheless, I finally feel like I am where God wants me to be. I am so glad you are here to share this all with me.


I live in Thomasville, GA with my husband Laraun and our children (blended family of 5 kiddos!). I enjoy home making, baking and anything skin/beauty care related.  


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
