About Lorinda

Lorinda Buckingham started her journey in Detroit, Michigan. As a first-generation African-American college graduate of Tuskegee University raised in a Detroit working class family, Lorinda demonstrated leadership from an early age and overcame many obstacles to reach her goals. Faith, family, education, and hard work were values taught in the home to all of the children by her mother and father, who were natives of Trinidad and Tobago and Detroit, MI, respectively. Inspired by her urban beginnings and faith, Lorinda developed a strong passion for leadership, personal growth, and entrepreneurship.

TUSKEGEE UNIVERSITY

Lorinda attended the prestigious Tuskegee University, which was well-known for its engineering program, and graduated with a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering. During her time as a student, Lorinda was heavily involved in campus activities such as Campus Ministries, Student Government Association, Community Outreach programs and more! It was during this time that she sensed a heavy desire to serve youth and women.  This led her to take a temporary leave from college after her junior year at Tuskegee to attend Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, OK.

RHEMA BIBLE TRAINING CENTER

Taking a big leap of faith by leaving college, Lorinda embarked upon a journey of faith and spiritual growth at Rhema Bible Training Center. She has stated that it was one of the best decisions that she has made. During her time at Rhema, Lorinda enjoyed the practical bible teaching and training in how to teach, facilitate, and equip youth, young adults, and women in the word of God and in practical life situations. Upon completion of her studies, Lorinda graduated with a diploma in Youth Ministry. Lorinda returned to Tuskegee to complete the electrical engineering program, during which time she served in campus ministry as a campus minister, student government association, and other organizations.

This experience has been valuable to her clients, as it is optional to have faith-based coaching and training sessions. Faith-based services are available upon request.
