Supporting Young Professionals through Early Career Development with Ivoree Jordan & Myshell Gresham

As we progress in our careers, we better understand the importance of mentorship and coaching in our professional lives. Too often though, career coaching and professional development resources aren’t accessible to young professionals, whether it’s cost- or time-prohibited. Ivoree Jordan and Myshell Gresham have started We Have Range to change that and create accessible resources for young professionals, especially women. This week’s episode 115 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about supporting young professionals through early career development! 



In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Ivoree Jordan and Myshell Gresham are sharing the importance of creating access to career development resources for young professionals and actionable steps you can take right now to continue your professional self-discovery journey. 


Ivoree Jordan is the Senior Vice President of Business Insurance at Newfront insurance and co-founder of We Have Range, a firm that combines coaching, business consulting, and emerging media. Ivoree was recently named one of the Top 25 Agents of 2021 by the Insurance Journal, one of only four women and the only black professional honored on that list. She was also awarded the 2022 Woman of the Year by her firm for her commitment to clients, colleagues in the community.


Myshell Gresham is the Senior Vice President of Partnership Engagement - West Region at the Ascot Group and co-founder of We Have Range. An award winning insurance industry expert, Myshell has consistently demonstrated her capacity to drive partnerships, growth, and portfolio management through her 20 plus year career. Through her various leadership roles, she has found a love for helping others develop their professional careers, and is an executive coach.



Some of the talking points Julie, Ivoree, and Myshell go over in this episode include:

  • The importance of career development and how it often starts too late in the career.

  • How building professional networks early in your career helps in the long term.

  • Approaching your professional life with authenticity and honoring your identity at work.

  • While others can help, self-discovery is primarily a solo journey.
