Founder / CEO

Tawanna Rucker is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TruExpansion Foundation. Tawanna is responsible for the vision, strategy, and fundraising efforts for TruExpansion Foundation.


She is passionate about identifying strengths in children and teens. She is a licensed wellness specialist and certified coach who combines her professional knowledge, skills, and years of experience in wellness to create a unique program to help build self-awareness and self-confidence in teens through empowerment and wellness programs.


As a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children (CASA), Tawanna speaks out for the best interest of abused and neglected children in court.





"Teens are exposed to a lot of negative messages. Those messages seep into their subconscious mind, creating self-doubt and self-sabotaging beliefs. I want youth to know they have the power to create their own reality and make it amazing. We teach them how to believe in themselves and apply valuable tools in life. TruExpansion Foundation is my way of planting seeds of empowerment in youth and making a positive change in the world." - Tawanna Rucker, Founder
