These educational achievements prepared her to pursue her varied interests, which are all aligned with her passion for serving others. She is an author, an entrepreneur, a mentor and a motivational speaker.

In 2010, she founded The Imagine Mentoring Program of Michigan. This non-profit works to increase self-esteem in young people and equip them with the tools they need to make a positive impact in their communities. Her experiences as a mentor and life coach led her to write two inspirational books, with more in development. Ms. Garth is also the owner of a multi-purpose event venue. When not in use by clients, she opens the space to host mentoring sessions, community programs and to serve as a small business incubator. Leveraging her experience as a business owner, she advises other entrepreneurs looking to take their companies to the next level. Latonya leverages her many relationships in the areas of business, education, and community development to improve the lives of others.

As a motivational speaker, her blend of positivity, power and sincerity is unmatched. Whether an audience of ten or ten thousand, Latonya can be counted on to hold their attention and make an impression. She leaves the room buzzing, and there is often a line of people waiting to speak to her when she exits the stage. Latonya brings that same energy to her corporate training engagements. Her clients appreciate her efficient, accessible style. In addition to the skills outlined above, Ms. Garth also has experience in branding, marketing and event planning.
