Hi, I’m DJT. I'm looking forward to learning more about you throughout the course! Take a moment to learn more about me.
Like you, I'm the first in my family to graduate from college and I couldn't have imagined that this would be my life! I'm a recognized speaker, coach, and expert in leadership development. I'm passionate about supporting first-generation and marginalized communities to achieve their collegiate and professional goals.
I coach highly talented individuals at the intersection of leadership and identity and helps them to secure their dream job, navigate challenging work situations, and prepare for high stakes conversations and presentations.
I hold a B.S in Business Administration from Clark Atlanta University and an MBA from Marquette University. I began my career as a management consultant at Deloitte and have been recognized for my passion, commitment, and leadership over the past 25 years. I transitioned from corporate America when I had my “quarter-life” crisis which led me to spend two years in Central America as a Peace Corps volunteer. I'm fluent in Spanish. One of her most notable accomplishments is being selected as one of 20 inaugural Obama Fellows among an applicant pool of over 20,000. I currently sit on the Board for Chicago Public Library and Chicago Public Radio (WBEZ). My 12-year-old daughter and I recently co-authored an Amazon best-selling book entitled: Little Black Pearls for Little Black Girls which is meant to inspire pride and confidence in little girls who will be tomorrow’s leaders.
The bottom line is that I've learned so many lessons in leadership that I know will fast track your road to success.
