She attributes her success to her faith in God and her parents. Scott Stone, Executive Vice President of America’s Registry of Outstanding Professionals, says of Flora Sowell “I have known 'Flo' for a relatively short time, but even in that stretch I have observed her to be a consummate professional, a caring individual and a truly one-of-a-kind person. She has known her fair share of hardships yet she has persevered as a true powerhouse in her industry. Just ask her adoring patients. I have personally handled Flora’s biographical and marketing matters through my firm since last year, and I am consistently awestruck by how quickly and strongly our business relationship, and even friendship, has evolved. She is here only to spread good, without compromise, without personal agenda, without any of the stuff that typically clouds a plight like hers. To me that is so refreshing.” Mr. Stone was instrumental in moving forward Ms. Sowell’s career and in 2016 helped promote her career in the press.
