Director - Diversity, Customer Advocacy
" JTA has been a proud sponsor of the Jacksonville Black Expo (JBE) from its inception. JTA recognized the value in encouraging, empowering and inspiring individuals in the entire community and the African-American and small business communities in particular.
The Expo has provided a forum for attendees through education, events and hands-on initiatives. Each year the Expo continues to evolve its programming to find creative ways of improving the quality of life within minority communities by strengthening businesses, inspiring youth and building better lives. When an individual realizes that better is possible then good is no longer an option. JTA is excited about continuing its partnership with the JBE as we face the challenges of a new decade with the confidence that by coming together we can overcome every obstacle. "
