How Dr. Lewis’ Journey Guides Women Up the Ladder to Success:

Dr. Lewis has always had a passion for helping others in any way she could.  Having served in the military for several years and in civilian federal government, one day she realized women were coming to her for advice on a lot of things such as going over their resumes’, for advice on what they should do next to move their careers along, helping them to get through an interview and mentoring.  She also noticed that there were not a lot of women helping each other to move up the ladder.  There were not a lot of women who took the time to mentor or share their knowledge with others.  Seeing these things, she knew she had honed in on her purpose.  This inspired her to start her own business to provide guidance, personal and professional development to those who needed and wanted to advance in their careers or to start a business.  It also inspired her two books “Playing from the Blue Tee: Women in the Federal Government” and “Finding Your Best Inside: How to Persevere and Become the Person You Are Meant to Be.”

Beyond the fact that Dr. Lewis is a career strategist, author, trainer and entrepreneur, she also serves with a commitment to family, community and professional development.  She believes in strategic partnerships, supporting minority and women-owned businesses and in the delivery of outstanding quality, both personally and professionally.  She lends her expertise to different venues within the working women and entrepreneurial community such as Womenworking.com and MO.com and volunteers her time at local schools mentoring programs and non-profit organizations such as Federally Employed Women, MGAA Professional Development Institute and Women’s Army Corps Veterans Association.

She has been active throughout her 20-plus year career in supporting women through her writing, speaking, and volunteering.  She is on the International Advisory Board of the Professional Woman Network, was selected for a three year term as Board Director for the Justice Federal Credit Union and was Vice President of Membership for the Northwest DC Chapter of Federally Employed Women.

Dr. Lewis is a frequent speaker and media guest and lives in the Washington Metropolitan area.
