Meet Lisa Medley

Lisa Medley, is an executive and leadership coach and teacher who used her impeccable work ethic and professional grind to position herself as a highly credentialed leadership development expert dedicated to helping Black professional women advance their careers.


It all began with salmon cakes, grits, and toast.


My home in Philly was a safe space for a handful of Black women to gather and share their most intimate challenges. Every month we gathered in my home, shared a delicious breakfast, played our favorite gospel music, and prayed. That time together grounded us, inspired hope, and facilitated change.

Then it all came tumbling down.


My husband of 10 years walked out on me and our five children.


At 33 years old, with five children (ages 6 months - 8 years old) in tow, I enrolled in undergraduate school and earned my Bachelor’s Degree.


A few years later, I started my corporate career. I drove 144 miles a day, four-six days a week for $13/hour. In just three years I advanced to a senior role.


My grind didn’t stop there.


I took my coaching to another level by earning a Master of Science in Executive Coaching.  


I’m one of the first 24 people in the U.S. to do it.


Black professional women face challenges unlike any other race or ethnicity. Their executive coaching and leadership development must be different.


I know what Black professional women need.


“Lisa gave me exactly what I needed in the moment. If it was tough love because I was being stubborn or tenderness when I was In a vulnerable place. Lisa was able to get her points across to me.”


My coaching and training is designed to specifically to help them advance.
