BPW Awards Bursaries To Two Local Women

May 28, 2017

The Business and Professional Womens’ Association of Bermuda has awarded two local women their Dame Marjorie Bean Bursary Award.

Kelly Madeiros and Tamisha Greene each received funds to help them further their careers as entrepreneurs via their participation in Bermuda College’s Streetwise MBA program.

A spokesperson said, “Kelly Madeiros is the owner and director of Solstice, a mental health center committed to providing quality mental and behavioral health care for families. Kelly is a clinical social worker focused on not only psychological assessments but wellness interventions.

“Her business has blossomed since opening its doors in 2014. Kelly is a mother of two young boys who volunteers her time in the community and sits on multiple government boards. Tamisha Greene is the owner and creative director of Ambiance Design Studio specializing in interior and event design.”

BPW Scholarship Chair Lauren Bell said, “Both these women are an example of perseverance and hard work. I am happy to represent BPW’s efforts in furthering the continued education for two such worthy candidates.

“BPW chose to focus on assisting working women with these bursaries because providing assistance to working women is our number one priority. Both women were awarded amongst members, friends and family at a brunch earlier this spring.”
