About Maryann JP Coleman Weldon

As a child, Maryann was known for climbing trees in Sunday dresses. One might say that was a precursor to climbing corporate ladders in STEM as a Christian and Woman, who’s also African American. That same ambition, strength, goal-setting, determination, and persistence thread from yesteryear to today’s futuristic visionary.

Maryann utilized strengths of business savvy, communications, and leadership, to obtain an Organizational Communications Management degree. Her industry-leading media agency internship led to an immediate career in entrepreneurship.

Maryann is the CEO & Certified Scrum Master of Empire Org. LLC, where she has organically built a lean certified, servant leadership focused contractor operation which organizes and orchestrates execution of several process improvement methodologies. Contracting afforded her freedoms financially, remotely, and creatively, that were unmatched by peers. Thoroughly enjoying all the growth, advancement, enlightenment, challenge, and innovation via Fortune 100 & Fortune 500 clients, made Maryann want to share the opportunity with others.

Quite often, for years, she had been the only female, multi-ethnic, and youth in the room. She chose to accept it as more of a compliment and advantage than insult or hinderance. Most importantly, it became an inspiration and motivation.

Maryann acquired multiple certifications and training in Tech Scrum Mastering, Agile Project Management, Business SAFe Scaled Project Management, and Traditional Waterfall Project Management. Project Managers, especially in the Tech industry and Engineering teams, are an area of need and has continually projected growth. Maryann increased her personal demand and created Empire Org, LLC for that very reason.
