I'm Mickie

Nice to Meet You

One Strong Southern Girl is a female-owned and operated business that was started in 2016 to help women improve their lives with home exercise.

Since then it's grown to include a thriving 6-figure product business, popular podcast and signature course, Home Exercise 101.

The mission of One Strong Southern Girl isn’t about helping you do ONE workout. It’s about helping you reach your potential as the best person you can be--inside and outside.

The One Strong Southern Girl family is committed to serving humanity and supporting a transformation that starts with each of us.

I’m, Mickie, a small-town girl from Tennessee with big time dreams.

I want to help every woman find their confidence, power and sexy inner self through exercise. I believe a strong healthy body leads to a strong mind that can help you have a better life.

But, Mickie, you might be saying, exercise won’t solve all the problems in the world.

Oh, my friend, believe me, I agree.


With a strong body (and mind) you’ll be 100% present every single day and ready to face whatever life throws your way. 

Why do I think this?

Because over the last 25 years my life has been just as interesting (and challenging) as yours...

"With a strong body (and mind) you’ll be 100% present every single day and ready to face whatever life throws your way"

My first pregnancy was at 19 and my first marriage wasn’t until my second pregnancy 2 years later. For years I lived under a roof where addiction set all the rules. I lived in public housing and was on food stamps for several years. Then there was divorce…and remarriage…and 3 miscarriages…and then cancer and becoming a widow with 4 kids.

And I truly believe that my love of exercise and dedication to feeling physically capable of anything has always given me the mental fortitude to go on no matter what.

And of course, I’ve had so much to celebrate, too...

Who's the girl behind One Strong Southern Girl...

I graduated with a Master’s degree and obtained board certification and licensing in a highly respected medical profession. I adopted 2 amazing babies and have 4 kids that I live and breathe for every day. And I found love again and remarried my junior high boyfriend and have had the joy of being a step mom to a little girl with beauty and leadership beyond her years.

So, I hope you’ll join me on this journey to becoming the best version of you. A woman with her head high because she knows she has the physical and mental strength to face every up and down in life with a smile on her face and her hand stretched out to help the next girl in line.

wife, mother, sister, small business owner, YA author

I was a certified personal trainer in my 20’s, I’ve run four 10K’s, five 1/2 marathons, one Warrior Dash two Tough Mudders (so far) and a Spartan Sprint.  And my kids, of course!

Bad cuing in a workout video, when the instructor is off beat, not telling me what weight they’re using, and worst of all…an instructor that doesn’t actually do the workout (stopping to show proper form for a second is ok but don’t walk around the whole time while I’m dying…not cool)
