InVision Her seeks to empower women to be healthy, whole, confident, and creative vessels of change for themselves, their families and communities.
Dr. Dorcey Applyrs, Founder and CEO of InVision Her is a women’s empowerment enthusiast. In 2013, a life changing experience prompted Dr. Applyrs to dig deeper to uncover her life’s purpose. Her mother being diagnosed with breast cancer helped her to realize the importance of living life in a carpe diem state: seeking pleasure in the current moments and not delaying for the future. It was through digging and taking risk she had the revelation that advocacy and women’s empowerment is what she was born to do. Quite frankly, darn good at! She learned that there was something magical about empowering women to take ownership of their destiny. These magical moments and a constant inner tugging led her to launch InVision Her in 2016, an unapologetic women’s empowerment lifestyle brand.
