Life Strategist | Coach | Author | Consultant | Professional Speaker 

Educate | Encourage | Empower



Hi There! Welcome to my website. I am so happy that you are here. I should probably start by introducing myself......


My name is Dr. Tierini D. Hodges-Murad but you can just call me Dr. Tierini. I am a Certified Life Strategist, Author, Consultant, Professional Speaker, and Educator with over 19 years in the higher education industry and 18 years of coaching experience. My company, Dr. Tierini Enterprises LLC, provides coaching and consulting services to individuals, institutions, and companies.


An expert at teaching others how to Level Up!, I provide strategies that help individuals and companies to gain the clarity, direction, and momentum to reach their next level of success.  I am known for being a safe space where Superwoman can take off her cape. I aid high-achieving superwomen to alleviate stress, discover purpose, and live the life they truly desire.  Be sure to visit my life coaching page to learn more about my results-driven Level Up! Life Coaching programs. 


I'm so excited to share with you the labor of love that is my book, Level Up! Living on the Levels God Intended. In the book, I help you apply biblical principles as you navigate the life battles that often stand between where you are and the level where you would like to be.  With transparency, authenticity, and a sprinkle of humor, I accompany you along your journey to Level Up! 

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE to talk! I feel so lucky that I get to talk for a living. As an in-demand professional speaker, I have spoken at several corporations, universities, churches, and conferences. An expert storyteller, I use my expertise to motivate others toward maximizing their full potential. To see me in action, be sure to check out my speaking sizzle on the speaking page. 


Now to get a little more personal.....I am the wife of a hardworking husband, the only child of my mother, the eldest child of my father, and my daddy's "Punkin". I currently live in Charlotte, NC, I'm a mommy to my 'fur baby' Tyson, and I LOVE chips and salsa!  I earned my Doctorate of Education in higher education leadership from East Carolina University and I earned both my Master’s and  Bachelor’s degrees from the University of Miami, FL (GO CANES!!)  I am a group leader with Bible Study Fellowship, a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a board member for Find Your Legacy Inc., and a member of the Programming Advisory Group for the Brooklyn Collective in Charlotte, NC.


As I began to reflect on all that I have learned, loved, lost, and grown through, it occurred to me that my struggles might help others who are facing the same or similar challenges.  So may my honest transparency  that flows through this website resonate with you in such a way that you can sense me alongside you, holding your hand, as we Level Up together


It is truly an honor and a privilege to connect with you!
