Jamillah Warner (aka MsJ)

As Seen Live and Person (MsJ's short list)

CEO at Gritty Writer, Jamillah earned her BA in Public Policy from Vanderbilt University. While discovering the ways that policy impacts nations, corporations and communities, MsJ also uncovered her fascination for business. Observing the distinctions between academic training and what she calls “Dirty Hands University,” MsJ understands that there is nothing like actually doing the work.

A poet with a passion for business, Jamillah is a freelance writer specializing in marketing, branding, management strategies and all things small business. She has taught marketing and communication strategies at organizations like AutoTrader, Black Writer’s Reunion and Conference and The Phenomenal Woman Conference. Having worked closely on three major startups and been a 12 year manager of a dynamic team at a non-profit serving foster children, Jamillah has written business plans, project policies and procedures, grants, operational manuals, team communication strategies and numerous tools to help train and inspire others.

When she’s not working on Gritty Writer or helping a client discover and spread their core marketing message, Jamillah loves to write and perform poetry. Her work has appeared in numerous places including UpTown Comedy Club for a poetry break, V-103 Atlanta Radio and numerous youth conferences and women’s events. She enjoys a big laugh, a beautiful day and a great story.
