In 2007, Dr. Ro founded Empowering Urban Minds (EUM), a non-profit organization to nurture social, emotional and academic development among inner-city youth with special needs by working with parents. However, Dr. Ro realized there were others who impacted the development of youth.

It has always been Dr. Ro's desire and DREAM to make a positive impact on children who need the most help so they can achieve their own dreams; however, her experiences help shape her thought process, "It Takes a Village" to empower children and communities.  Therefore, in 2015, Dr. Ro developed her Practical Excellence Model expanded EUM to Dr. Ro Empowering All Minds (DREAM) Education Consulting was conceived to offer a comprehensive educational service to parents, schools and communities.
