Junita's Jar
Junita Flowers, known as the Hope-Muncher-in-Chief, a title coined to represent an online movement of hope-filled messages inspiring women to live their best lives, is an entrepreneur and inspirational speaker. With more than two decades of experience working with nonprofit organizations, Junita has spent her career advocating for families, equipping youth to lead fearlessly and inspiring women to embrace the good, bad and “everything in between” seasons of life.

Driven by the limitless opportunities to forge new paths and strengthen community through entrepreneurship, Junita built upon her experiences from the nonprofit sector and began her work as a social entrepreneur. As the Founder/CEO of Junita's Jar, a mission- driven cookie company, Junita continues to empower young adults as leaders, by fostering open dialogue and increasing awareness among college students on reducing the occurrences of relationship violence against women. 

Committed to leading by example, inspiring the courage needed to conquer limiting fears and challenges, Junita lives everyday on a mission to pursue purpose, create change and make an impact.
