I met Marsha Flemmings in December of 2012 and I’ve always been amazed by her. As soon as I officially became a part of Marsha’s team I finally I had a manager that was young, successful in her field and cared about uplifting her team both young and old. I have a reserved personality (which really isn’t the best in that field). Marsha still saw something in me.
She has an ability to always see the best attributes in people and allow them to see that in themselves. Marsha coached me through my reluctance to return to school. She told me to pursue my dreams and go after my goals. She even accommodated me in ways that went beyond what i expected just to ensure I had access to a space to study. This is the type of person she is and has always been. She is the biggest cheerleader to anyone she comes in contact with. Marsha gave me the push I needed to get off of the small island I was on at the time and purse my dreams.
I will always credit her with that. Whatever I could imagine for myself and wanted for myself she wanted for me. She became a mentor. I value her coaching on both personal and professional matters. I know that anyone she encounters, as a coach, mentor, associate, leader or friend she can either help change their mindset or give them new ways to tackle a problem or look at a situation. I will never forget within a year of meeting her the honesty she gave to me and helped me see there was more I could be accomplishing. Who doesn’t need a person like this surrounding them and encouraging them to do their best in all things? Marsha makes things happen.
She will not settle for mediocre anything and she holds the people she surrounds herself with at the same standard. She makes me very proud to have her as an example to me. Marsha is the reason I have my degree, I didn’t sell myself short in relationships and she taught me the importance of writing EVERY SINGLE THING DOWN! It works! I am forever grateful to her. She plays a part in creating and developing the woman I am today!
