I am a corporate speechwriter and executive coach with experience in the healthcare, nonprofit, tech, and food and beverage industry. I am passionate about serving thought leaders ready to share their stories and inspire the next generation as authors, speakers, and executives.


I guide high performers to reposition your company’s brand inside and outside of corporate America. I work with businesses ready to attract top talent and build a strong reputation with influencers, diversity champions, and investors. My clients understand that the great work of their organization hinges on the success of the individuals working within.

To effectively showcase your diversity and inclusion work and increase your market share, you need strong brand champions on your team.  


What's your strategy for leading your team?


The same way rock stars can strengthen your credibility; employees who are unhappy with their careers and opportunities for development can damage your brand internally and externally. When I come into your organization, I’ll serve as the Sherpa guiding your developing leaders to successfully navigate uncharted terrain. I am here to help you tell your story and execute your strategy to achieve your goals. 


As president of  Leverette Weekes, I lead a team of professionals to create award-winning leadership development programs, communications, and coach high potential talent.

About Me:

  • I have a B.A. in public relations and journalism from Howard University. I have a Master of Science in Managerial Communications from Northwestern University.



  • I am a corporate speechwriter supporting high achieving c-suite executives. I specialize in making it easier to explain complex tech, media, and philanthropy ideas. 



  • I am a certified licensed practitioner of Insights Discovery, and Leverette Weekes is a licensed distributor.



  • Past and current clients include Lyft, CRL Consulting LLC., Patterson Companies, Women's Foundation of Minnesota, Teach for America Twin Cities, and the James L. and John S. Knight Foundation.


I'm Meredith!

I believe that everyone has value and talent!

As an executive coach, I’m excited to advise high performers both inside and outside corporate America to act on their career and life passions.

I’m a public speaker. I motivate audiences to boost their confidence and to create an action plan.


As a ghostwriter and speechwriter, I help clients capture their truest voice and then show them ways to connect it to their own authentic brand.


As a Board member for Jeremiah Program and FR Bigelow Foundation, I’m creating more opportunities for women of color to overcome disparities and advance into leadership roles!
