Hermance Speaker 

Dr. Tanisha Lemelle

Dr. Lemelle is an accomplished entrepreneur, corporate trainer, consultant, and strategist.  She began her professional career as a high school Spanish teacher before going back to school to complete her Master's degree in Human Resource Management and then earned her Doctorate in Business Administration.  She spent several years in the corporate arena working her way up to Vice President of Employment for a national financial services firm before she gave into her passion for entrepreneurship.  Dr. Lemelle is the owner and CEO of The Clever Site, a full-service digital marketing agency, where she helps small businesses do it BIG online. As an online strategist and business consultant, she has helped elevate the brands of attorneys, therapists, authors, and coaches, around the country.

After several years of empirical research on minority and women business enterprises (MWBEs), Dr. Lemelle built a framework for entrepreneurs, based on the best practices of successful minority and women small business owners in government contracting.  She uses this framework to teach, train, and coach other entrepreneurs to build successful businesses and overcome obstacles commonly faced by MWBEs.

In addition to transforming MWBEs, Dr. Lemelle is passionate about investing in people and has been actively doing so for almost two decades. In her role as a mother, business owner, and community volunteer, she loves to spend time mentoring young women and supporting her favorite charities and non-profit organizations.

Dr. Lemelle has traveled the world as a missionary, teacher, and motivational speaker. Some of her most exciting moments were being interviewed by Soledad O'Brien on CNN, meeting President and First Lady Obama, and visiting the Holy Land at the request of Israel's Ministry of Tourism.
