DeAnnah Stinson Reese 

CEO & Principal Consultant 

DeAnnah Stinson Reese is CEO and Principal Consultant for Educate, Equip, and Empower Professional Services. DeAnnah began consulting minority professionals over 10 years ago around strategies to grow in their career and secure employment at fair and desired salaries. Once DeAnnah officially launched her business she saw massive growth in a short amount of time as she developed and implemented individualized and institutional programs centered around career growth and leadership development. DeAnnah takes a special interest in working with minority women to help move them into senior level/VP/C-Suite roles as there is a huge disparity in minority women presence in these levels of leadership. 

DeAnnah has successfully coached 100's of clients over the years to secure high level roles and increase their salary. On average, clients see a 37% minimum salary increase often times ranging from $15,000-$20,000K at minimum. Her corporate coaching and staff trainings save business clients 25% of their hiring budget on average resulting in more effective succession planning, increased diversity in management, higher staff retention, more engaged staff, and increased team productivity. DeAnnah recognizes company cultures are multifaceted and she consults her clients on strategies to be more inclusive in their day-to-day practices to sustain programs and trainings that are provided. 

Thus far, DeAnnah has been featured as a contributing author with Forbes and featured numerous times with Women Exceeding, LinkedIn, and Boss Up Magazine. She has been a guest on various podcasts and shows including HR Answers and The Executive Innovation Show. DeAnnah is a strategic business partner with Hacking HR and works frequently with the Houston Area Urban League. DeAnnah has collaborated with various nonprofit organizations in Chicago and Houston to support young mothers needing assistance on their journey to success.

DeAnnah is also a Star Wars fanatic and unrecognized tennis pro!
