About Kemi Sogunle

Kemi Sogunle - Love, Life, Relationship and Purpose Strategist


Kemi Sogunle is a certified professional coach (listed as one of the best 10 coaches in Maryland, USA by Thumbtack.com, a life and relationship expert on Self-Growth[dot]com  and featured as a contributor to The Huffington Post, a Dating Expert on Older Dating UK), multi-award-winning author and international speaker. She is the Founder/CEO of the nonprofit organization (501c3), Love Not Hurt, an organization that promotes self-development, building healthier and stronger relationships while living with purpose.

Mission: Kemi's mission/purpose in life is to support single men and women who are ready, to find who they are after a broken relationship or divorce, heal from their painful past experiences, learn to love themselves and develop positive and healthier relationship habits. You will learn how to gain a deeper understanding of your life and relationship vision while living truthfully and purposefully to make your life become better not bitter.

Her Story: She writes and speaks from a personal place and experience on relationships, healing, forgiveness and purposeful living by moving from pain to purpose. Kemi began her journey to becoming a life and relationship coach after her separation and divorce, which led her to soul-searching.  Raped at age 17, she kept this to herself and never healed from it. This led her to looking for love in the wrong places. After her painful divorce (after 15 years of marriage), she embarked on a journey to finding herself and she connected to her spirituality while learning to view life from a different perspective. She found herself, healed and gained a deep understanding of life and relationships as well as her purpose in life. She shares deep and inspirational messages through her writing and has touched many lives across the globe. She also teaches and inspires others to become the best version of the person God created them to be on daily basis. She believes that living truthfully is paramount to long-lasting relationships and healthy living.

Kemi holds a first degree in Microbiology and a Master’s degree in Information Systems. She has also served as a volunteer with the Center for Pregnancy Choices and the American Red Cross Key Chapter, Meridian, MS. She enjoys spending time with her son, gardening, interior decorating, signature perfume making, traveling and listening to music when not working.

"I have learned over the years that a woman's sexiness is not about how she looks, what she wears or what others have to say about her. It is found in how much she loves and sees herself from within...how much she truly believes in herself. As a woman, you must wear it every day, live it out loud and let it serve as a reminder that you are beautiful and your "Sexy Starts with Self-Love®." - Kemi Sogunle - Join the movement
