Dr. Marléna Gasper (she/her) is a revolutionary entrepreneur and healing strategist, working at the intersections of education, urban farming, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) culture in Los Angeles, CA/Occupied Tongva land.  She divides her time between her consultant work with ARC MultiServices, Inc. coaching school leaders, teachers, and executive leadership to create safe and personalized learning experiences for underserved communities and marginalized voices.  When she is not healing students in this manner, she practices Integrative Medicine, inclusive of Intuitive Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Personalized Nutrition, Myofascial Release, Hydro-Oscillating Vibration Therapy™ (patent pending) and Cannabis Cooking (CBD Food Infusion) with Sol.CentriX Wellness group™.  Although she treats a wide spectrum of health and ailments, her specialty there is imbalance, disorder, and or disease resulting from trauma inflicted on people of color.

As a third generation teacher she is a subject matter expert in persistence in urban education, healing with intuitive acupuncture, and transformation.  Sisterhood, service, and love are her self proclaimed love languages.

Dr. M is currently working as the Lead Researcher & Herbalist for a plant-based skin care brand, Stacked with Style™.  Today’s version of the transformed Dr. M is the daughter of Sheila/Denise, granddaughter of Shirley/Essie/Arlene.  She is the proud mother to two sons, a daughter, a bonus-daughter and a dope turtle called Spike.  She loves and heavily participates in the conversation of personal & economic sovereignty and is the founding member of the forthcoming investment firm Beehive, Business Banking & Blooming for Bad Bitches!

You can find her, in all her glory, showering her family with love, accountability, and good food.  Check her out at:
