Hey sis, I’m Kabrena Williams! Or affectionately known as Kb.
I’m the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Kb in Bloom, named after what many people call me, ‘Kb.’
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Florida with a focus in linguistics and anthropology. I went on to obtain my master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis working in the field of autism, brain injury, gerontology, and mental health for over 12 years.
Ah, and now you are here in my special self-care space. Kb in Bloom is a curated space where one gets to familiarize themselves with good content that was created with them in mind.
I hope you leave here more inspired and motivated to own you while soaking in the importance of taking time with yourself.
I was working in “corporate” doing amazing work in the eyes of my colleagues. I was always the youngest, and only black practictioner in the room, and yet, I pushed through. How many of us BIPOC women can relate to this?
A couple of years of overextending myself as a BCBA led to some extreme burnout and anxiety. But you know what? It needed to happen in order for me to grow this community and help redefine what self-care as a black millennial woman means today.
For many black women reading this today, discovering this space is you choosing to bloom and prioritize your self care . You’re making the ultimate statement that operating as a black woman can certainly co-exist with your ever present responsibilities.
I hope you get all you need here when reading a blog or two, purchasing a self-care product from the kb in bloom shop, or sharing a blog post with a friend. I hope you leave here more inspired and motivated to own you while soaking in the importance of taking time with yourself.
Most importantly, I hope you receive more than a few self-care nudges you weren’t expecting to feel but needed to feel.
Take care, self care

Rings, earrings, books, quotes.

Doubt myself to believe that I have to wait until something is absolutely perfect to publish my thing.

Anything where I can move! Bike riding, dancing, Pilates, yoga, you name it!
Naturally, I lean more towards the introvert side but I have plenty of moments where my extrovert side shows. I’m a very goofy person.
