Blanche Williams was hooked on the beauty, genius, and history of jazz since her father introduced her to jazz, through music reels he brought back from overseas, while in the Air Force. On November 2, 2014, Blanche began a weekly hour-long Sunday drive to take flute lessons from Grammy Nominated Music Educator Melton Mustafa Jr. Her dedication and passion helped her become a member of the Palm Beach State College Jazz Combo, Lake Worth Campus, within a year of playing. Her stage name is Fluteity, representing the continuous flow and flexibility that jazz allows. Blanche gained notoriety as host of XM Satellite Radio show Greatness By Design in DC (2003-2010), interviewing the world's most fascinating jazz legends Sonny Rollins, George Duke, Nancy Wilson, Lalah Hathaway, and Quincy Jones. She conducted stellar panel discussions and covered historic events including front row coverage of the Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama. She is President of Greatness By Design LLC, specializing in team development, leadership training, and strategic planning.  She holds an Master’s in Leadership with BA in Communication Studies and is the author of How To Design Your Mind For Greatness and contributing author in Chicken Soup for the African-American Woman’s Soul, Black Girls Guide: How To Be A Sister, and Tuesday Morning Love: 52 Commentaries and Weekly Affirmations to Honor the Soul Within the Souldier. She established and convened National Black Women’s Town Hall Meetings (2008–2010), garnering a private invitation from First Lady Michelle Obama to the White House.
