Jessica Atkinson

Omni Logistics

Jessica’s positive energy is contagious. When she speaks, her personality shines through and you want to listen. But, that wasn’t always the case. She was once afraid to be herself in professional settings. As a result, her coworkers didn’t feel comfortable around her. She wanted to be an effective leader and knew she had to make a change. So, she did. She is now an authentic leader who brings her full self to work.

Listen to her story.

Carri McQuerrey-Funk


Carri McQuerrey-Funk is a well-respected leader and a mentor who many look up to. But it wasn’t always like that. Her early managerial days were marked by a “my way or the highway” attitude. When family tragedy struck, she realized she’d been trying so hard to be a boss while her team really needed a leader. She changed her approach and found that by empowering others, she became more effective and confident.

Dr. Marlene Fuller

Citizens Bank

Dr. Marlene Fuller learned the hard way that work won’t love you back. She’s always been an overachiever, believing that her work was her worth. Endless hustling did the trick until life started throwing curveballs. Somewhere amidst life’s toughest moments, she started to talk. By reaching out for support, she learned to value herself beyond her accomplishments and found sharing her journey more fulfilling than chasing success.

Tonia Brown

ARM Compliance Business Solutions

Tonia knows she has the power to choose her own path. If you told her this in her twenties, though, she wouldn’t have believed you. Her childhood and early adulthood were characterized by abuse at the hands of others. After a heart attack at 23, she decided she must change her life. From that moment on, she took control of her future and created her own success. Tonia is now a true testament to the power of choice.
