Angie is an expert rainmaker whose ability to impact change makes her a game changer. She spent over 14 years as a business leader in the financial services industry at Morgan Stanley and its predecessor firms in roles such as Deputy Director of Diversity, Director of Online Training and Director of Professional Alliance Relationships. Three time self-published author of the Wake Up Girlfriend series, Angie is most proud of the 14 women that she coached to become first time authors. She uses her superpower to reintroduce women entrepreneurs and employees to their girl powers by discovering and implementing success tools to increase their profitability.
Her response to the overwhelming desire for professional women to make lifelong connections with NEW Girlfriends is the League of Girlfriends. Angie believes that “Every woman needs a girlfriend just like Oprah has with Gayle!” The League of Girlfriends began as an opportunity for transient women new to the Atlanta area to connect with one another through social outings and service based events. Women responded in droves and the organization has rapidly grown from 50 members ‘sin May 2019 to over 425 today with Girlfriends as far away as Texas, Hawaii and even Alaska. Due to the tremendous growth and a need to pivot since COVID 19 and our country climate Angie immediately shifted to create a fresh opportunity to keep her members engaged and to elevate their skillsets as small business owners. She launched 100 episodes of a show she created on the Monday that Georgia shut down titled, The SUPERGirlfriends virtual talk show.
This gave four members a day the opportunity, many of who had never gone live, to showcase their businesses live. She also created a Girlfriends Leadership Academy which has significantly changed the trajectory of its members businesses and profits. Her goal continues to be to teach women “How to Fish!”
