Feleceia benton & Rebecca Reid
southern dallas Co-directors
Feleceia, affectionately known as Zoe's Mom, is a passionate lover of God, His people and His purpose in her life and the lives of others.
Her knack for creativity and business inspired her to start her own company. Now in its seventh year, the Zoe Communications Agency is a creative content and brand management company that builds strategic marketing solutions for cities, communities and businesses like the City of DeSoto, the City of Hutchins, RISE Clothing, and the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce. She is driven by her desire to find really big solutions to really big problems, especially for organizations and communities.
Her love for writing inspired her to not only author her first book, Lessons from Five Fingers: 21 Life Lessons from the Book of Zoe, but also led her to found Elisia Magazine, a quarterly digital lifestyle magazine that celebrates the diverse voice of the American woman.
An accomplished award-winning singer and performer, Feleceia has performed on almost every professional theater stage in Dallas/Ft. Worth and has been featured in publications like the Dallas Morning News, Culture Map Dallas, and most recently on the cover of Thrive Magazine with her little girl, Zoe.
As a single mother of an amputee born with Down Syndrome, Feleceia still finds the time to record a weekly podcast, LifeChat Radio, where she and her co-host talk music, business, spirituality and all things life.
Ms. Benton holds two degrees from Texas Christian University, a graduate of the Leadership Southwest program, and is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Public Leadership at UNT-Dallas. She also sits on a number of non-profit boards in Southern Dallas County.
Feleceia is ultimately passionate about spreading her inspirational message of creativity, spirituality and empowerment through faith, hope and action.
Rebecca has a passion for connecting with other women and empowering them to be who they’ve been created to be! She is a visionary, relator, and enjoys deep and authentic relationships. Growing up on the California coast gave her a love for nature, travel, and warm weather as well as opportunities to perform in professional theater. She went from CA to OH to attend Cedarville University, met her husband, and graduated with a double major in Communications and Theater. After college she worked in Marketing for Dallas Theater Center but after having her twin boys her entrepreneurial spirit awakened and she successfully started her own business where she educated, coached, and trained women in business for 6 years.
Rebecca is adventurous and likes a challenge, so she decided to train to become a Certified Personal Color Analyst in the fall of 2017. After completing her certification, she started her own company called Colorpolitan in the spring of 2018. As a analyst, she uses a unique scientific color analysis method to help clients discover the best versions of colors that enhance their natural beauty, make them feel amazing, and can be used for their clothing, accessories, & home decor! She loves sharing about the power of light & colors in our lives and the beauty in the human race.
While wearing many hats, Rebecca’s favorites are wife to her hubby Robert, Associate Pastor at City Church International, and mom to her now 4 adventurous and energetic little boys!
She is thrilled to be the co-director for Polished Southern Dallas and is excited to see women’s lives impacted by coming together to be in community with one another, share truth, and lift each other up!
