Chief Executive Officer, Speaker & Author
Indigo launched Careers In Transition, Inc. as an independent consultant in 1995, which quickly parlayed into a successful venture with the company becoming incorporated in 1997. Initially, the company provided career transitional assistance as companies downsized, but changed its focus as companies became more enlightened to motivate their remaining employees to perform and excel. Consulting companies come and go, but under Indigo's leadership the company has thrived, becoming an indispensable Talent Management organization.
As author of Playing by the Unwritten Rules I: Moving from the Middle to the Top and Playing by the Unwritten Rules II: From a Job Defense to a Career Offense, Indigo established herself as a leading authority for career management. NASA, Census Bureau, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and numerous other organizations and conferences have purchased her books in quantities of 200 to 1,000 copies. She has written for nationally recognized magazines and newspapers as well as having her own Career Zone advice column in Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine.
Indigo is best known as an authentic leader who is hilariously honest and refreshingly blunt by tackling such organizational development and workforce topics as employability, diversity, mentoring, workplace relationships, and communication. Some of the organizations that Indigo has worked with range from Environmental Protection Agency to Halliburton, which demonstrates her ability to be transparent and agile in meeting the specific needs of her client base. From Tucker, Georgia to Wiesbaden, Germany she delivers a message and philosophy that is insightful; thus, resonating with people at every tier of their career or within an organization. Aside from speaking engagements, Indigo also appears as a guest expert on a variety of radio and television programs.
Indigo served in the U. S. Marine Corps as a Field Radio Operator and as a Communications and Public Relations Specialist. She holds degrees in journalism, radio and television, and a Master of Arts Degree in Human Resources Development. As a former faculty member for DeVry University and Clark Atlanta University, Indigo taught business communication, motivation and leadership, and career development courses for both graduate and undergraduate degree programs primarily to adult learners in management positions.
Recently, she launched a non-profit called Indigo Insights. She is equally as passionate about community leadership as she is about leading her company. Her nonprofit was created to inspire and educate historically disadvantaged people, to develop and manage their career as a tool for achieving higher levels of career success and minimizing underemployment. In addition, she has two active scholarships that she finances, and was recognized by Project Open Hand and the Aurora Food Bank for her financial support and volunteerism. She believes that when you take care of others, you’ll be taken care of, as well. In 2010, Indigo was a Finalist for the Woman of the Year Award by Atlanta Business League (ABL) which was founded by Booker T. Washington. In 2011, she was recognized by the ABL as one of Atlanta’s 100 Most Influential Black Women.
