Even mandatory bed rest while she was pregnant with twins did not stop her from successfully leading her team. Freeland learned the ropes of govt contracting through personal experience, as both an employee and employer. In her new book, Navigating Your Way to Business Success: An Entrepreneur’s Journey, Freeland shares her own inspiring success story, while providing practical business strategies. Finding herself passed over for 7 years for promotions, Freeland began to focus on growing her new company, and in 1993, Freeland started RGII Technologies, Inc., an IT, systems intergration and engineering solutions company, named in honor of her son, Richard Gregory II, who passed away when he was 2 months old. Freeland was born and raised in Birmingham, AL. After high school she remained in her hometown while earning her BS in finance from the Univ of AL at Birmingham. She received a MBA business administration from the Univ of MD, College Park. In 1995, she was named the Minority Small Business Person of the Year by the SBA. In 1999, Black Enterprise Magazine named RGII as their Emerging Company of the Year. In both 2003 and 2006, she was included on the Maryland Top 100 Women list and, in 2002, received the Baltimore Business Journal “Forty under Forty” award. Freeland successfully built and sold RGII to Computer Horizons Corp in 2003. After fulfilling a 3 yr transition period with Computer Horizons, she retired in 2006 from the brain child she started in a basement office and set out in search of her next entrepreneurial venture, Freeland & Associates, LLC. She has been featured in Forbes Magazine and the Washington Post. She serves on the board of directors for Baltimore Washington Med Ctr, the board of visitors for the Univ of MD, Baltimore County, & the board for Black Women in Sisterhood for Action.
