At Janie's Fund, "We inherently believe in being the support our young women need to overcome their trauma and provide the safe space they need to heal." ~ JF
Before I found my voice, all I had was my poetry. The Gates of Freedom was my way of expressing all the big emotions I was feeling just moments after getting the news my step-father had turned himself in and was finally in custody. Little did I know that one day, I would share it with such a room of people in such a profound way. Blessings and Miracles abound.
"Sharing my story isn't easy, and will never be easy. Sometimes doing the right thing isn't easy, but when you know it's the right thing to do, and you have a desire to help others, You do it. You do the right thing."
Edie Allen has a stunning story of resilience, overcoming adversity, and self-recreation.
Experiencing severe neglect, physical and sexual trauma from an early age, Edie ran away from home at fifteen, cycled in and out of foster care, leaned on substances and tumultuous relationships to survive, and then, at age 27, began to pull herself out of that life after being properly diagnosed with P.T.S.D.

Experiencing severe neglect, physical and sexual trauma from an early age, Edie ran away from home at fifteen, cycled in and out of foster care, leaned on alcohol and drugs, and then, at age 27, began to pull herself out of that life after being properly diagnosed with P.T.S.D.
A few short years later, she left the nursing profession to become a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist which introduced her to a whole world of non-traditional healing modalities and energy work including Reiki, Jungian psychology, meditation, and cutting- edge wellness techniques of psychoneuroimmunology, specialized trauma therapies and mindfulness practices. Taking personal development into her own hands, studying, and learning from the best of the best, she began to heal.
With a heart devoted to helping others and a passion for transformation, Edie became a Certified Professional Life Coach and created a boutique healing practice in 1997 to assist people in a process she calls SHED SHIFT & SHINE.
"Nothing makes me happier than sharing the tools and methods I've learned in my healing journey to help others SHED what holds them back, SHIFT their energy and beliefs for success and happiness, so they can SHINE like the lights - I believe - we are all meant to be. Then the whole world becomes a healthier, brighter place."

Adding SERVE to her own SHED SHIFT & SHINE process, She recently joined with Hollywood’s Elite and Rock Royalty to share her story on stage at Steven Tyler’s 2nd annual Grammy Viewing Party Gala for Janie’s Fund in Los Angeles, California, helping to raise more than $2.8 million for girls who’ve suffered from abuse and neglect. She proudly and humbly holds a seat on the Executive Council of Janie's Fund.
Edie is passionate about sharing her story with as many audiences as possible in hopes of letting those who still suffer know that they matter, and to inspire them to use their own voices and stories as a way of healing and empowering themselves. Using her story as a platform for change, she also hopes to educate and inspire groups, organizations, corporations, churches, and institutions who have an interest in Empowerment. A Professional Speaker listed with Southwestern Speakers Bureau as well as The RAINN Speakers Bureau (Tori Amos founded Rape Abuse Incest National Network), Ms. Allen is an expert in Personal Development, Empowerment, Transformation, Mindfulness, Psychoneuroimmunology and Resilience.
“…I realize my usefulness to others depends on how much or how well I show up. I simply couldn’t show up before. I was wounded and I wanted to make myself invisible. I was just trying to survive. Now, I'm ready. I've done the work to heal, and I want to inspire others to be Warriors for their own Wellness, Bo Eason once said, 'You don't have to be the best storyteller, you just have to be the bravest.' That spoke directly to my soul. I knew it wasn't going to be easy. Sharing my story isn't easy, and will never be easy. Sometimes doing the right thing isn't easy, but when you know it's the right thing to do, and you have a desire to help others, You do it. You do the hard thing."
