About Simone “I am ShePhoenix” Higginbotham

Simone O. Higginbotham, also known as ShePhoenix, is the Owner of ShePhoenix Productions, ReBirth Magazine, Cool & Casual Sunday PHAT Girl Chronicles Brand and a community volunteer. The community activist, AmeriCorps Alumni, and 45 year old divorced and single mother of one, is a woman with ambition to make it to the top! Raised by a single mother in a bad neighborhood, she never allowed her situation to dictate her purpose or destiny. Simone does her best to be a pillar in the community, but also realizes that she is a work in progress. She admits that she has flaws and may not be what others want her to be, but she is all that she can be and loves herself, flaws, curves, and all.


As a determined, hardworking self-starter and obviously a woman who wears many hats, she could not stop and know what she had to do to succeed in the business industry so she began to write her vision and made it plain.  She immediately began developing her own brand, ShePhoenix Productions. She has made many strides and developed great relationships with other companies, a rapport with her community, and now has established colleagues that she has partnered with to not only put her company on the map, but unselfishly help theirs also.


Simone is definitely moving in the right direction and has her eye on the prize. She feels giving up is not an option and will not let anything stop her. By stepping out on faith, Simone created ReBirth Magazine, a vehicle to give a voice to the voiceless. The second Anniversary of ReBirth Magazine was celebrated in June of this year. A few more of Simone’s greatest accomplishments are releasing her first novel Caged by Words-Something like a Memoir on April 12, 2015. The novel details the emotional, mental and verbal abuse she endured during her marriage. Simone’s latest addition is PHAT Girl Chronicles a depiction of the Sex and Dating Life of a Plus Size Woman. PHAT Girl Chronicles can be found on or
