I was privileged to have traveled around the world as an Air Force brat; but no matter how many times we moved, a NEW experience, in which to adapt was always waiting, and as a NCAA scholarship volleyball player at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tennessee, I further learned how to be a “team player”. At Samford University, at the Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama I learned the strategies necessary to WIN in a male dominated industry. When I entered Corporate America via some prestigious law firms, I gained confidence that I can be just as effective and accomplished as my male counterparts and much of this I learned through trial and error. Which is why Corporate Homie is so important to my sister and me. Being raised in a home that upheld the values of excellence, we weren’t expected to be perfect, but our personal best was an absolute requirement.
In my 15 year career, I have upheld those values and expectations by working with clients and business executives of Fortune 500 companies in a plethora of capacities. This positioned me to become the first African-American woman promoted into the rank of partner in our firm’s nearly 130 year history. When it comes to managing multibillion dollar corporations, internal politics and corporate relationships, I have gained quite a bit of expertise. I am ready to help you achieve your goals in being the best at what you do, regardless of your background. I want to empower others because I truly believe Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s theory that we are “caught up in an inescapable network of mutuality.” In other words, what each of us does, will impact one another and because I have been so grateful to have accomplished so much during my journey this far, I just want to reach back and help you do the same. Corporate Homie wants to be your “go-to” corporate community that you can find the answers to any questions and creative ideas for any situation. We’ve been blessed and Bemetra and I simply want to bless others through private and group coaching lessons, entertaining courses and strategic tools to help you move ahead and become some of the most powerful women in Corporate America. You will become both respected and a force to be reckoned in the corporate market.
