TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU?

To begin I was born Dorothy Crystal Bethea. I am founder of Lucey Media Holdings, Inc., an award-winning filmmaker, and actress. I earned my Bachelors in Psychology from South Carolina State University and I have a Masters with a concentration in Forensics from Southern New Hampshire University.

In terms of business I have 5 years’ experience in the film industry, 5 years’ experience as a mortgage loan officer, and for the past 24 months I was a counselor/mentor at New Hope Carolinas Inc.

However the most important thing I think you need to know about me is that I pride myself on my ability to confront every challenge– and I thoroughly examine all options before I decide on a solution. An example of this are my documentaries, “Open Legs with a Closed Mind and Colour MeBlack” completed regarding the problematics in society that are heavily impacting our youth. I was able to complete “Colour MeBlack” in less than a year by revaluating priorities and renegotiating outside costs with other producers.

I also think it’s important to mention that I thrive on being a role model as someone living with a purpose to inspire others. In fact, I am going to continue building leaders to become good citizens in society, and I will contribute valuable insights on how to dependably to take a more active role in helping shape the changes I wish to see. As a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., it is my duty to always promote leadership skills, scholarship, and service.
The final thing I think you should know about me is that I am a very passionate person, and I’ve had great success in building relationships and getting the most out of each person/team member by creating a positive environment, mentoring the team members, and helping everyone understand their purpose and how important it is to understand their identity.

I know my skills and work experience will make me an asset here at Elevate Lifestyle and I know I can deliver the results you are seeking as a leader of Charlotte.
