Dr. Mary M. Gillam
Dr. Mary M. Gillam
M2G Dynamic Leadership Solutions, LLC
President & CEO

Imagine being married at age 14, giving birth to 17 children, and widowed at 48, with five teenage children still at home to raise. If that is not enough, you are now given sole responsibility for four of your little grandchildren – all under the age of six. That is the story of the paternal grandmother of Dr. Mary M. Gillam because that is exactly what happened to her. Dr. Gillam was one of those little grandchildren.

Despite growing up in very humbling conditions, Dr. Gillam was determined to succeed. With God as her guide and her grandmother as a role model, Dr. Gillam triumphed against the odds. After achieving the rank of Colonel in the United States Air Force, she was later selected to the Senior Executive Service Corps in the Department of Defense at the Pentagon. Destined to follow her dream of business ownership, in 2013, Dr. Gillam established M2G Dynamic Leadership Solutions, LLC. The company is a woman-owned, service-disabled veteran, small business specializing in information systems technology management and leadership development consulting services located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
