About Us

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is to see every woman empowered to walk in her unique calling unbound by toxic relationships.

The mission of EVM, based on Isaiah 40:3-5, is to overcome the effects of toxic relationships by encouraging women to:

1. Know the truth about God, themselves, and life, so the crooked places are made straight.
2. Grow in the healing and liberating knowledge of that truth so the rough places are made smooth, and 
3. Apply that truth so they are empowered to Go and walk in their unique calling, bringing glory to God.

Know. Grow. Go.


Naeemah Shakir

Naeemah is an educator, author, speaker, mentor, veteran homeschooler, researcher of psychogenic pain, and the founder and director of Exalted Valley Ministries. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Radio-TV-Film/Telecommunications Management and a Master of Business Administration from Howard University. Her passion for supporting God’s purpose in people’s lives led her to obtain certifications as a Christian Life Coach, a Trauma-Informed Victim Advocate, Marriage Coach, and a Mental Health First Aid Responder.

She has helped many women suffering and recovering from intimate partner terrorism as an Abuse Recovery Coach specializing in Narcissistic Abuse, which led her to answer God's call to establish Exalted Valley Ministries in 2018. Believing God's promise of abundant life, she is fulfilled knowing that He uses this ministry in the lives of His precious daughters to reclaim what the enemy has stolen, revive what he has killed, and renew what he has destroyed.
For over 25 years, Naeemah has used her passions to minister to women, children, and families. She has served in many capacities including Women's Ministry Director, Co-Founding Director of Mama Mzazi, a mom's support group, Founding Director of Mama Mzazi Homeschool Group, Pathfinder Club Parent Liaison, and Director or Co-Director of mentoring organizations serving girls ages 6-18. Committed to breaking cycles that threaten to rob the next generation, Naeemah regularly speaks to groups of high school girls.

Naeemah is a “thriver” after many years of enduring covert narcissistic abuse. She believes that God allowed her to survive her experience so that she can join Him in the mission to rescue fellow women and subsequent generations from the effects of traumatic relationships. She believes that in doing so, God is redeeming her pain and using for good that which the enemy meant for evil, saving many souls (Gen. 50:20). ​
