Quelina "Que" Jones is a Richmond native, writer and speaker who focuses on women's empowerment and growth through transparency. She's a strategic communicator and a profound storyteller. She believes the first step to living your best life is healing your wounds. Through her blog, The Scribe, she uses her own experiences to inspire other women to heal from the inside out.

Que is the mother of two brilliant and beautiful daughters; a twenty year old young woman affectionately known as "Q" and a baby girl whom she refers to as “Jax". When not on mommy-duty or writing jaw dropping scripts and personal essays, Que is studying full-time to receive her business degree. In addition to being a student of life, Que is scheduled to make her highly anticipated debut as an author with the release of her non-fiction book. Stay tuned for the release date. In the meantime, she has added screenwriter to her list of literary accomplishments and is gearing up to shoot her very own short-film in late April.

Que is a lover of God and believes in the servant leader approach to ministry and life. To that end, she is an active volunteer in her church and community. For the last fifteen years, she has led the Bright Beginnings Program, a program she is extremely passionate about that provides clothing, shoes and supplies to underserved youth in the Richmond metropolitan community. She also served on the membership and engagement committee for UNIFI, a black employee network group. Additionally, she was a member of the Young Women's Leadership Alliance (YWLA), a young professionals board established by the YWCA of Richmond, during its inaugural year and served for two terms.
