The owner's Grandmother, Grandma James (Reather James), was a true bold Black + Native American woman entrepreneur.
She was a woman with a kind heat and stood in her value and belief system while knowing she could accomplish anything she put her mind to. So, she stepped in her journey with faith.
Mrs. James has a stamp on her name because of who she was. Her care for the community was remarkable. She cared for 50+ residents, employed locals, and fostered children. Her heart was big and full of dreams!
She had numerous rental properties, a boarding house, a farm, the assisted living facility, and was nominated for many leadership awards. Grandma James had over 25 acres of land that she passed down to her family where her daughters ran the assisted living facility, in North Carolina, after she passed. Grandma James was a woman that loved to have a good time and host friends and family functions, so events with family and friends were essential.
What was incredible about her was that she had a strong team behind her that not only treated her like a great client but they believed in her and were like family. They were behind her 100%, from attorneys to CPAs to land brokers, you name it she knew them and they fully supported her and her family.
Mrs. James wanted nothing but the best for her family and wanted to leave a legacy that would inspire others to have peace, happiness, family, faith, and at the forefront lead with quality and compassion. We want to continue her legacy and allow more legacies to be created like Grandma James' to come along on the journey and stand in our own word and support each other. It is time we create space for women leaders like Reather James (grandmother of owner), Edythe McMillan (mother of owner), Stephany McMillan (sister of owner), Tiffany McMillan (sister of owner) and Monica McMillan (owner).
