Tenita Abraham is a Financial Advisor with a passion for guiding and educating others through unexpected financial challenges in life.

In 2014, as a single mother, she found herself making the decision to take in her father at the diagnosis of her father’s further declining health. This seven-year journey, which defied an unimaginable number of odds, strengthened their bond and reshaped Tenita’s life. Amidst COVID-19, the news came of entering her father into hospice and the expected months left in his life. With that news, she decided to leave her corporate career to care for her father full-time, launching entrepreneurial ventures and sharing the latter part of the journey on social media.

Together, they shared cherished moments of singing and dancing, words of wisdom, promoted new businesses, and even his final vacation wish to Maui. Tenita is honored to share this remarkable caregiving journey on the podcast, underscoring the invincible power of love, faith, and resilience.
