From Executive Assistant To Vice President Meet Ayanna Chambliss

From Executive Assistant To Vice President Meet Ayanna Chambliss

“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are” ~ Max Depree

A dynamo EA turned Vice President, today’s guest is truly an inspiration for those who dream of branching out and achieving that next level in their career.

Ayanna Chambliss was an Executive Assistant with The Coker Group for 16 years, when her leadership recognized the high level work that needed to be done in their organization, and had the amazing insight to promote from within, by reorganizing Ayanna’s position to better align with the new duties assigned to her, as Vice President of Administration.

In our conversation we discuss Ayanna’s journey from C-Suite EA to VP, the challenges she now faces, the leadership and organizational changes she intends to implement within herself and her wonderful opportunity to pay it all forward as she collaborates with her own administrative assistant.

It’s not very often that we get a “behind the scenes” look at what it takes for an administrative professional to break out of their comfort zone, level up and take on new responsibilities with confidence and determination. 

I am so excited to share Ayanna's story with you! Truth be told, if I could possess just a teaspoon of her intellect and sparkling personality I would count myself very lucky!
