Niquenya Collins, or “Coach Niquenya” as she is best known, is the President and CEO of Building Bridges Consulting, a small business consulting, executive coaching, and corporate training firm specializing in transforming dreamers into successful entrepreneurs. 

She has over 20 years' experience partnering with small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs to bridge the gap between where they are now and where they need to be to build successful, sustainable, and profitable organizations. She deliberately seeks out entrepreneurs with bigger-than-life visions who want to stop wasting time, monetize their talents, and finally generate the revenue their business concepts truly deserve.

In addition to her work with small business owners and entrepreneurs, Coach Niquenya delivers customized corporate training programs, career coaching and transitional job training in partnership with workforce development programs. She is also the author of several professional development titles available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online bookstores.
