Sabelle Millimono, Sponsorship & Donor Relations

Sabelle is a wife and a mother of 3 children with a passion for God, women, and children. Sabelle moved to the US in 2014, when her husband accepted a new job in the engineering field. At that time, Sabelle completed her 14th year of experience in a corporate environment as a Marketing and Communications Manager (both in France, and as an expatriate in Morocco) in the Telecommunications, Aeronautics, and Money Transfer industries. In the US, Sabelle discovered a new fulfilling pursuit by serving women through her direct sales clothing business. Waking up every day to encourage, style, and connect with other women ignited a passion for being a positive influence in the lives of other women. In February 2019, at the age of 41, Sabelle welcomed a beautiful baby girl. This surprise blessing altered her mothering journey. She developed the desire to educate her children at home. Sabelle’s educational research led her to neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology. She developed a strong interest in attachment theory. She was drawn to the impact of how childhood experiences and our level of received nurturing through attachment and authenticity define who we become and the level of our fulfillment. Strengthening our interpersonal relationships in order to contribute to our overall health and well-being is a mission Sabelle strongly supports. In all she does, she aims to inform about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and encourage women to self-care. She is also working on two related projects: The ‘Moms Heart Alive’ and ‘Beautifully Woman’ retreats. Sabelle wants to dedicate the rest of her life to serving women and promoting children’s well-being through her work, and volunteering, raising awareness on ACEs. She firmly believes that happy children (and happy moms) make a better world and a better tomorrow.
