Meet Tomeka, Business Solutions Team Lead
Our people are at the core of our business. We are featuring the amazing individuals who make EGlobalTech an exciting and supportive place to work.
Tomeka is a highly valued EGlobalTech Project Manager who supports the implementation of infrastructure throughout DHS projects. Tomeka enjoys motivating her team and supporting their career growth, especially during the unprecedented times of the Covid-19 Pandemic. She has been diligently exploring solutions for the EGT team for six years and has over thirteen years of experience in the field. In her own words, “Being at EGT has afforded me opportunities that weren’t necessarily asked for, which made me realize what I am capable of, which is leading and helping others realize their strengths and possibilities to grow their careers.” Tomeka believes in the importance of staying agile and open to learning new things. In an ever evolving and innovating workplace, this is a must in the federal consulting space.
Her parents are a driving force in her inspiration to relentlessly succeed. While her mother made countless sacrifices to be a stay-at-home parent, Tomeka unequivocally believes her mother is the smartest women she has ever known. This is in addition to her father being a retired Air Force Colonel who has successfully led those under his command each day and emphasized how important education is. This robust combination in her upbringing has shaped who she is today.
Tomeka is constantly challenged and motivated to be her best, which led her to pursue a demanding Computer Science degree. She has overcome challenges unique to being a black woman in a male dominated STEM field. The culmination of her lived experiences have made her the strong, empathetic, and passionate leader that she is today.
She believes that her success is best defined by happiness and good health. In her own words, “You can be at the top of the hill but not happy, then it means nothing. I can wake up in the morning and not dread work; I can watch my girls who are ten and six realize their dreams and ambitions. Being happy and healthy and the ones I love are happy and healthy, this is what defines success.”
Prior to EGT, Tomeka has an extensive background in customer service and providing innovative solutions to provide a gold standard of problem solving to our clients. When Tomeka is not busy being a Rockstar at EGT, she loves to travel, workout, read, and spend time with her family.
