"She wanted the Rainbow so she put up with the Rain".
Teresa Ann Harvey founded Leading Ladies RVA in 2017. Affectionately known as "Tee", Mrs. Harvey was passionate about encouraging women to lead fearlessly in all walks of life. A health care worker for over 30 years, Teresa's family owned business helped her to realize the importance of a supportive network. To this effect, she organized the inaugural "Leading Ladies Brunch" on May 20, 2017. The brunch was successfully held in Richmond, VA at Paisley & Jade. Under Teresa's leadership, the initial group continued to grow and host many events partnering with AARP & the Black Women's Health Imperative. The Teresa Ann Harvey Business & Education Scholarship is awarded often to support our youth, professionals seeking education & entrepreneurs growing their businesses.
