Guest Biography

"Healing for your Soul"

Malaun Rice – Victor, Speaker, Coach
Founder - M-Drive

Malaun Rice is a sexual assault survivor. She was kidnapped and raped when she was 10 years old. From that point her light was dimmed. She dealt with anger, lack of self-worth, depression, and borderline alcoholism most of her adult life. One day her life crashed and she realized she needed help. Malaun began with therapy and started her journey of healing. Through this journey she learned self-love, the power of the word NO and what freedom means to her. The biggest come up in her journey is the relationship she has with God! Now, she is a life coach and speaker who blazes the trail to help others to begin the healing process. 

Malaun Rice injects passion in everything she does.  As a thinker and a doer, she flourishes in anything that she does; bringing her commitment to delivering results to corporate and non-profit organizations.  For ten plus years, Rice built a record of success producing events, developing partnerships, and creating campaigns for influential brands such as Walt Disney World, Allstate Insurance, Clear Channel, McDonald’s and the United States Census Bureau.  On this path, she learned a great deal about managing clients and celebrities with a deft touch, the importance of consistent innovation, and the value of her natural ability to build mutually beneficial relationships.  

After 10 years in Corporate America, Rice gave into her entrepreneurial leanings and founded M-Drive, a company specializing in transforming lives and changing mindsets for people to discover how to live their best lives. Not only did this move allow her to bring her complete portfolio of expertise to the marketplace - but it also provided the opportunity to do something that has been important to her since she was very young: lend spiritual and professional support to women. 

To this end, Rice started Lioness Den, the non-profit arm of M-Drive that focuses on building up women who have been victims of sexual crimes and abuse, may have damaged self-esteem due to numerous attempts to render them powerless, or need mentorship to help them walk fully in their purpose.  Rice knows there is life after trauma; and is wholeheartedly dedicated to her goal to extend a helping hand to women globally via transitional homes that promote healing as well as economic and professional development programs. 

Rice is a sought-after speaker who has captivated audiences at engagements held by organizations such as National Council of Negro Women, Morton College, Local First Arizona, Schaumburg Business Association, Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence and DuSable Museum and has been a guest contributor for media outlet WJYS-TV.  Rice has a BA in Business Administration with a Marketing Concentration from Governors State University in University Park, IL and a Master’s in Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL.  She is a proud Chicago native, currently residing in Phoenix, Arizona, who enjoys indulging her fashionista tendencies by shopping at local boutiques in between client meetings and doing good for womanhood.
