Her company is a nationally certified African-American, full-service, female owned security firm with offices in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Africa. Ms. Parker’s company has even worked side-by-side with the United States Secret Service to protect President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama when each delivered commencement speeches in Atlanta.
