About Latoya

Latoya B. McPherson – BIO

Latoya McPherson was born and raised in Waterbury, Connecticut, and discovered her affinity for reading and writing as a young child. As McPherson grew to sympathize with sufferers of traumatic experiences, she was stirred to address the emotional wounds of hurting people. With an open heart and mind, and a pen in her hand, Latoya burst on to the literary scene in 2014 with her divine assignment, Scars That Never Heal.

In addition to her full-time vocation, Latoya is a motivated individual who has a passion for teaching adults and the collegiate age. She has taught at Central Connecticut State University, Post University and at community colleges across Connecticut. Despite her active schedule, Latoya considers her book, Scars That Never Heal, to be a very special project. This piece is a non-fiction book that focuses on experiences that leave many of people emotionally and psychologically scarred. It speaks to sensitive areas like abuse, adoption, divorce, generational curses, and more.

She is grateful for the many opportunities that her writing has presented.

Since its release, Latoya has been privileged to be featured as the guest speaker at Connecticut’s Federal Correctional Institution, NAACP events, Literary forums, Women’s Conferences, Domestic Violence Awareness events, Health and Wellness forums, The Salvation Army, Faith Based Organizations, and urban High Schools.

Her mission is to speak a word of healing into the life of those who have been emotionally broken and held hostage by traumatic experiences. Whether she is teaching Christian education or conducting seminars on her book, Latoya’s greatest aspiration is to see lives transformed through biblical principles, and to see people fulfill their purpose despite the scars.

Latoya McPherson graduated with an undergraduate degree in Accounting from Post University and a graduate degree in Business Policy and Strategic Leadership from the University of New Haven. She resides in Connecticut.
