Winnie Caldwell is a St. Louis, MO native. She studied Corporate Communications at Lindenwood University and proceeded to work in a fast paced industry blogging, content creating, teaching and empowering others in the community. Passionate about serving others, writing began as a natural fit. Winnie began blogging in 2012, which led to speaking engagements from St. Louis, MO to Washington D.C. Blogging also led Winnie to manage and build websites for others as well as teaching teens how to do so through a local financial literacy start up. Though, Winnie couldn’t stop there. Winnie also has over 3 years of experience working with youth to not only empower them but teach them how to profit via blogging/media relations. Grateful for an amazing support system on every endeavor she has approached, Winnie ensures to continuously represent her hometown gracefully.
While climbing the Media Relations ladder, she’s also been leading a young leader. At a mere 17 years old, Winnie gave birth to her son, Sidney Keys III, 11 year old Founder of Books N Bros LLC. After overcoming adversity as a single mom, Winnie has used her testimony to assist, inspire and empower others. Outside of Sidney, Winnie always says her blog, thewirehangerbywinnie.com, was her second child. Blogging pushed Winnie to travel to places she never imagined, meet people who continue to support her from all over the world and reach bounds that were never expected. And this dynamic duo's latest passion project, Books N Bros has been a testament of Winnie's connections, education and hard work. When Winnie is not networking, blogging or being a momager, she loves to travel near water for peace of mind, enjoy her favorite butter pecan ice cream and/or binge watch Netflix originals.
Over time Winnie has honed the title of being an online community influencer with a knack for leadership, community Involvement and corporate communications.
