About Blossoms

History

I Am Blossoms was founded in 2010 by Gail Lee Gardner. Blossoms’ creates a new way of thinking and educates young women about LIFE. We focus on five key areas of life, which involve becoming mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and financially fit. This creates positive exposure for our young women, empowering them to become leaders in our society. We create vision boards, serve our communities, have photo shoots, and we also have our very own Book Club. In all that we do, we’re learning how to improve these five key areas in our personal lives. Blossoms’ also prepares young women to tap into their life’s purpose. Parents for Public Schools have prepared Gail Lee Gardner to bridge the gap in the Greater Cincinnati Public Schools system. After volunteering 2.5 years, and serving over 90 young women, Blossoms was later renamed I Am Blossoms International Inc. In 2012, the Organization registered with the State of Ohio, and received their tax exempt status 501c3.

“Use what you have today, to empower tomorrow.”   ~GLG

First and foremost, Gail Lee Gardner considers herself a servant. She is thrilled to be fulfilling her life’s purpose, which is helping people, specifically women and girls. Gail serves through two very specific roles, first as the founder of I Am Blossoms International, and second as a Certified Life Coach. With a passion for empowering both girls and women, Gail has made it her life mission to provide unique and creative ways to assist each individual in reaching their full potential.

Gail’s revolutionary approach came to her after she participated in the Parent Leadership Institute that is offered through the public school system in the Greater Cincinnati area. PLI helps parents empower their children through the educational system, further teaching them to become advocates for their children. Upon her completion of PLI, Gail was tasked with creating a program to engage parental involvement.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Gail got to work. I Am Blossoms was born in 2010. I Am Blossoms is a voluntary program, offered through individual schools, and is available for girls between the ages of 9-12. I Am Blossoms focuses on the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial health of each girl. Gail combines her own experience with extensive research and provides a complete program to help girls reach their full potential. Girls leave this program with a new level of self-esteem and strong confidence in their own unique abilities.

Some of her unparalleled programs include the incorporation of book clubs, community gardens, role model seminars, photo shoots, and life trips. The ultimate goal of I Am Blossoms International is to establish a chapter in every school and community, so Gail’s message of leadership and discovering your purpose is readily available to every girl.

When Gail isn’t at I Am Blossoms, she is helping women realize their goals by working as a Certified Life Coach. Gail received her certification through both the Valor Institute and Fowler Wainwright International. Becoming a Life Coach was a natural progression because Gail is the kind of woman who embodies warmth and inspires trust. Combine this with her professional experience and business savvy, and you have a well-rounded, highly effective life coach. She is a soft shoulder, blended with sage advice, and business acumen. Her life experiences allow her various perspectives and provide the kind of reliability crucial to both her and her clients’ success. And she knows how to succeed! Gail will help you unlock the tools that will aid you in overcoming obstacles and solving issues. Through this, you will uncover your true purpose and realize your full potential.

Gail was born in Lawton, Oklahoma, but has lived in Cincinnati since she was nine years old. She is raising her own two children in the same city in which she spent her most formative years. Gail continues to be inspired by T.D. Jakes work “Woman, Thou Art Loosed.”  

Fulfilling her unique calling, Gail will continue to touch the lives of the girls and women who are fortunate enough to cross her path. Stay tuned and check back often. Gail is just getting started!
