Emerald Williams' Story
Emerald Williams has over 10 years of experience in research, marketing, customer service, and leadership. She defines herself by a passion for helping others and her goal is to continue to uplift one individual at a time, helping them gain confidence, achieve self-sufficiency, and reenter and maintain their place in the workforce while building sustainable careers. In her spare time, she loves to explore and experience new places, cultures, and ideas by doing anything from traveling to reading a good book. Two of her favorite authors are Jamaica Kincaid and Ernest Hemingway.
Growing up in the Caribbean, Ms. Williams learned from a young age to work for what you want in life and was no stranger to being diligent and determined when pursuing one’s goals. She relocated to the United States to further her studies and attended the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia where she earned her bachelor’s degree. Since then, she has started forging a career with the intent of serving others at the forefront.
