img_0165-bw-final-smallerL.Y. Marlow is an award-winning author and sought-after speaker and empowerment advocate whose life journey took her from a legacy of domestic violence to the opulence of corporate America; and now to a life devoted to empowering others. Her story would be notable enough given her tenacity to shatter the status quo; but it would be her courageous decision to step down from a stellar 20+ year corporate career to write her award-winning Color Me Butterfly—the compelling and heart wrenching story behind the national organization she founded Saving Promise—inspired by five generations of mothers and daughters in her family that survived more than sixty years of domestic violence, including her granddaughter, a little girl named Promise. This heartfelt and captivating story moved L.Y. to share her journey of tragedy to triumph in Don’t Look at the Monster—a testament to the transformative power of discovering her passion, purpose and power.
