In the height of America’s greatest economic downturn, once again, Dr. Angela Reddix has re-affirmed her commitment to making a change. Since establishing the Reddix Rules Fund in response to COVID-19, Dr. Reddix has been able to personally fund $2,020 each to 13 small-women owned businesses located in the Hampton Roads. Lately, whereas much attention has been focused on technology companies, businesses that received her support range from a School of Performing Arts program owned by Windy Queen to a Kitchen Therapy facility operated by Brittney Callier.
Aside from funding small-women owned businesses, Dr. Angela has also turned her efforts to empower women through literature with the issuance of her debut novel “Releasing the Boss Within.” By accompanying the release with a virtual book tour, participants were filled with an abundance of information led by a phenomenal line-up of guest speakers. Felicia Burton, an attendee who serves as the Director of the Faculty and Academic Support Center for the William & Mary law school stated, “After registering for the virtual tour, I would have never imagined I would leave the event so inspired, empowered, and spiritually fed. So much that at 55, I became even more curious about how much farther I can go and what my future holds.”
What’s next for Dr. Reddix you might ask? Free education sounds like a plan. As the founder of an online training program, XDRA Health Solutions, her next mission is to raise up to $200,000 to scholarship 100 single mothers’ through the companies medical billing and coding courses. With a 95% pass rate for 2019 participants, this program sets students up to earn their certificate as a medical biller or coder, leaving them with sustainable career skills in a growing labor market.
