Workplace: Noble Territory/Cannadigm Ventures
As the founder of Noble Territory, Kelly Williams partners with organizations to host hiring and networking events in support of the veterans and intelligence communities. Since 2003, she has cosponsored more than 500 events that have helped break down search and recruitment barriers and strengthen labor-management relationships. In 2017, Williams formed Cannadigm Ventures, the first female-owned consulting firm in Delaware established to provide business and policy advisory services in the cannabis industry. Cannadigm works with local advocacy groups, state legislators, and national subject matter experts to ensure the future implementation of industry best practices.
Williams got her exposure to veterans and the challenges they face after military service while working for the Department of Defense, where she received several formal recognitions for judiciously executing her roles on multimillion dollar defense contracts, leading efforts as a logistics manager, contract officer and lead technical writer. Williams’ long-term vision is to open an Integrated Health and Wellness Center, combining conventional medicine and fitness with alternative treatments to help address the opioid epidemic in our state.
