I am a seasoned career woman who has managed more than 300 million in Oncology Clinical Trial projects for small and large Biotech and Pharmaceutical companies from start up through study closeout. As a Clinical Operational Strategist and Senior Director I have secured millions in new study awards for top CROs.
I decided to live the lifestyle I have imagined today so on my downtime you will find me blogging and helping other people with their Life and Career. My mantra is to live the life you have imagined and do more of what makes you happy. I have a high energy personality because I built a life and career that I love and I get real excited just to wake up and start my day. It does not feel like work when you are doing the things that bring you the most joy. For me that is Clinical Research, Life & Career Coaching, being the Coowner of Laface Beauty Studio in Las Vegas, cooking perscatarian style, running and being a mom to my two kids Tamia and Omari.
It took me a while to realize that I did not have to limit myself from being great or hide my passions. Most people know me as Black Career Coach since I represent the company as the CEO offering Career Coaching, Certifications and Training. However there is another side of me I want to share with you all and that is my life as an Entrepreneur running multiple businesses and helping others do the same. This is why I personally created this website. Yes I am techy too and love to save money so I do a little DIY and only outsource bigger tasks.
I am mostly a remote CEO which means my businesses run on auto pilot. This allows me the freedom to really make a impact in this world while continuing to work in Clinical Research. I also spend just a few hours coaching a handful of clients per week and through Black Career Coach refer people to some amazing coaches all over the world.
My greatest joy is motherhood. I had to overcome many challenges including growing up in the projects, fertility issues, divorce, health issues and the most heartbreaking experience having my soon to be adopted child whom I raised since birth taken from me illegally twice in 1 year. This is after I had my biological relative for 3 years since birth.
Philadelphia DHS and NET CUA caseworkers said they took her because they didn't see a car seat inside the house or baby food for a 3 year old. They also testified that she didn't eat baby food and later admitted they saw a car seat inside the home. If I didn't have the court transcripts which is public information than this would be hard for anyone to believe what happened to us.
Unfortunately in Philadelphia Family court none of our evidence mattered. I learned the hard way that Judges go based off of caseworkers testimony and do not allow any evidence to be introduced or for parents to speak most times. In fact one Judge I protested against for her crimes against families Lyris Younge was just sanctioned and suspended for 6 months for the trauma she caused families.
I continue to pursue #JusticeforTamia via a pending federal lawsuit and I will be sharing her Legally Kidnapped Story soon. This story although very traumatic has brought change to the system and will allow me to better educate families of their rights. In a weird way I believe God chose me for this battle. I am a researcher, I do not give up and I believe in making a difference.
My daughter is back home with her family after a very long and costly battle against DHS in Philadelphia. God has since blessed me with a son who was delivered naturally at 35 years young in 2019. I am thankful to God for giving me the opportunity to be a mom via a natural birth and for the family placed adoption. I also started a non profit organization called Philly Faces to advocate for Pennsylvania families. We are still getting set up but I am currently doing some volunteer work for the organization. This has been therapeutic for my daughter and I to help other families who are in need of resources, education or support.
As I close this out I wanted to share more about me. My personality is very humble, loving, kind, patient and I enjoy helping others. I love to learn new things and enjoy talking to people. I am hugger so the Pandemic really messed up things for me but I am adjusting. I was raised by Grandmother and she taught me about love, respect and kindness to all. I treat everyone with respect and dignity no matter their background or if we have different beliefs.
My motto besides living the life I imagined & doing more of what make you happy is simply push through even if you are going through. If you need an accountability partner please join my free Facebook group called Black Career Coach. Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard for it. I want to see you win!
