Company: Walmart Home Office
Position: IT Project Manager
After graduating from Jackson State University with a B.S. in Computer Engineering I moved to Bentonville, Arkansas to start my career in Project Management with Walmart. While in Arkansas I obtained my MBA and developed a love for running. I moved to Charlotte in August 2015 and shortly after married my best friend, Carlton Mangum in October 2015. Since being in Charlotte, I have had the pleasure of living a full life that afforded the opportunity to pursue all of my passions including running my first marathon, serving with various nonprofits, and serving my local church.
My most memorable moment when volunteering is when I get to connect directly to the recipient the service is intended for.
Serving my community is like breathing; it comes natural to me and is essential to the quality of my life. I serve as the Executive Director for Flo Charlotte, a nonprofit organization that provides feminine hygiene supplies to women and teens that may not have access to them otherwise. I am on the Community Service committee with Urban League of Central Carolina s Young Professionals. I also contribute by mentoring local high school girls as a small group leader.

“Our successes and accomplishments will better serve us when we use them to serve others!” - Rickey Harvey, Jr.
In 5 years I see myself having strong ties with local nonprofits to have a greater impact on the women and teens in need of Flo Charlotte supplies. Professionally, I see myself working in IT as a Program Manager.

I’ve always wanted to wow random crowds with my singing and piano playing. I can’t sing or play piano.
My hero is my 26 year old brother Rickey Harvey Jr. He will leave the world a much better place than he found it. He preaches across the country and promotes spirituality, scholarship, professionalism, and community. Rickey is a 2017 graduate of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School with a Masters of Divinity. He serves his local church as an Associate Minister and was recently ordained as Reverend. He is a man on the move and we should all watch closely at rickeyharveyjr.com.
