Ebony has a BS in Chemistry from Jefferson in Philadelphia and a MS Environmental Protection and Safety Management from St. Joseph’s University of Philadelphia. She began her career in the operations and logistics side of the energy industry where she managed hazardous operations risk, HSSE compliance and auditing. After 7 years, Ebony eventually made her way to sales, marketing and oil origination, where she successfully developed her industry niche, financial risk management. Ebony worked with exploration and production companies, industrial users, refiners, maritime, and aviation companies on contract oil supply and energy oil price hedging using derivatives.
Ebony understands the needs of left-brain-leaders and created an equation to uncover and highlight their unique leadership style and acumen. Leaders research ideas, thoughts, and processes to acquire knowledge on the topics, but rarely integrate the information into everyday action. Ebony developed a proprietary model, Build Your Own Accelerator™ which combines a set of core principles, methods and tools to help her clients design better interactions with the people who matter most. Ebony’s goal is to get her clients to build better relationships because when people are engaged the profits, processes and productivity flow easily.
