My name is Domonique Roberts. I am the CEO and Founder of She's Going Places Inc. (SGP). SGP is a nonprofit organization aligned to support, motivate, and empower young women to pursue and fulfill their personal and professional aspirations.

 

I am a California native, proud resident of Compton, CA, and mother of three children. I grew up around entrepreneurs and professionals; so, from an early age I understood what it would take to become one myself.

Current  Real Estate Broker in California, Nevada and Georgia. ​I believe that every woman has a unique story - a unique voice. I have found that a willingness to share one's own story with authenticity and an open heart has the power to evoke positive change and foster a sense of well-being we all need in our lives.
