Lisa A. Smith

Speaker - Coach - Founder

"In everything you do, whether you’re an entrepreneur, executive, emerging professional or student your health is 100% critical to your success and plays just as big a role in your success as your knowledge, skills, abilities, network  and resources. Therefore it deserves and has earned a rightful seat at the table. Be sure to treat it as such."



Lisa began her own weight loss journey in 2012 at 190lbs. She fell in love with fitness, nutrition and self-development, lost over 60lbs and gained a bottomless amount of confidence. It wasn't until she gained confidence in her physical health that she was able to gain confidence in her career. With her new found confidence she launched Professionally Fit in July of 2015.


At Professionally Fit, Lisa and her team helped corporate and government clients identify opportunities in their organizational wellness practices which translated to growth and productivity in their companies. After launching Professionally Fit Lisa quickly realized there was a segment of the population for whom wholistic plant-based health and wellness coaching was not accessible. She launched The Black Health Academy in October of 2017. The Black Health Academy pairs an E-learning platform with signature coaching programs and educational experiences to ensure participants are empowered with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to successfully state their case for fair and honest healthcare, chronic disease prevention and mental health.

I really enjoyed your presentation!! You are a phenomenal speaker. Each time I hear you speak, I hear something that propels me to become a better version of myself!!! As you were speaking about the affects sugar has on our cognitive skills, I wanted to shout out Amen!!! HALLELUJAH, as if I was in an old Baptist church in the deep Deep South!!! I was reflecting where I was last year vs. where I am now and I am so amazed and grateful!! The depression is gone, I can think... I mean my brain is functioning better since changing my eating habits and I have tools to help me in stressful situations! I can say I have peace on the inside.  Thanks so much for doing what you do. My life has gotten better because of you.

It has been great learning from you and communicating with you. I have thoroughly enjoyed you every time you have come to present at the Entrepreneur Series. Your energy is dynamic and authentic and I absolutely love it! The first time I heard you speak, I said I need to find a way to incorporate her into my business plan!

I thought I had enough information on healthy living. Yesterday the information you presented was powerful. It was so many things I learned yesterday. I had assumed to hear subjects from before which may be true but you have found the way to bring it home. You are the best.

I told you all earlier that I needed to pick one woman that I look up to. It was a difficult decision but I knew this morning it would be Lisa Angel Smith but watching her live just fully confirmed it! She's such an inspiration!!! If you're looking for someone that doesn't possess excuses, is efficient, kind and just overall a phenomenal woman LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

M. Collins

I will be honest and say that I thought I would have given up over the course of these last 3 months. I'm so used to yo-yo dieting, interval training sessions BUUUT TA-DAY...I gotta testimony. I am approaching this from a completely different mindset. With the help of one of Detroit's best plant based nutritionists, life coach and personal trainer, Lisa Angel Smith, she done got ya girl soul beaming, skin popping, mind elevated and body 'bout to be banging, so blame her if you see me feeling myself too much!

B. Williams

I have attended your monthly nutrition classes, listened to your podcast and lectures and just received your cook book so I would say I am learning a lot about nutrition now thanks to you!!

P. Smith

God bless you so much. Thank you for being available to help me to go to this new way of living. You are a JEWEL. I'm praying for a strong long life for you my sister. You are like a tour guide to lead us to better health.
