Welcome to Innovation Meets Leadership. On this episode with my guest and my dear friend, Loretta Edmond, we discuss personal reinvention through mental focus and prioritizing what really matters in life.
With a Bachelors in Computer Science and an MBA, Loretta began her career as a Software Engineer. A PMI Certified Project Management Professional with over 15 years of experience in the recruitment industry, Loretta is a multifaceted leader with experience in project management, process improvement, quality assurance, operations, talent development, organizational development, team building, software engineering, and product development.
No stranger to re-inventing herself, recently transitioning from running a small business, Loretta has moved into real estate as a licensed Realtor in the State of Georgia. Licensed for over 15 years, Loretta’s passion for real estate started with investment properties. Through renovating properties, managing properties, and working with tenants, Loretta’s passion eventually turned to helping clients find their dream home.
As a Dekalb County resident, Loretta has served the community in various capacities whether through her place of worship, place of work or directly through a local volunteer organization. Truly invested in the success of her community, she currently serves on the Dekalb County Community Council Board for District 4, a volunteer citizen advisory group appointed by the Board of Commissioners to review rezoning, special land use permits (SLUPs), and land use amendment requests.
