Laureal Whitney is owner of Intimates Plates, a catering and event planning company that provides unique service for special occasion events, and is also the the owner and designer of LaMoni, a fashionable T-shirt line. She is a first time author, with more than twenty years of technical training in business, and hopes to inspire mothers who have lost a husband, and younger women with children.
Laureal watched her husband courageously fight a great, but short battle with cancer. Instead of allowing grief to take over her life and give up, she became the epitome of what a surviving and thriving widow should be. Building a foundation for their two young boys, as well as adopting and mentoring other children, became Laureal’s top priority. Her continued faith in God, fasting, and fellowshipping is credited to successfully maintaining her balance in life and career. Laureal continued to run her salon business successfully for over 20 years and by sharing her experiences, she was able to restore confidence and beauty to ladies that sit in her chair. She received awards in academic excellence, a hair cutting designs award, and most creative styles from Paul’s Beauty Institute. She served on the cosmetology board of advisory at a local technology trade center in Oklahoma City area.
Currently residing in a suburb of Los Angeles. Laureal enjoys traveling, spending time with her children, and sharing her story to encourage others through their grief process.
