Meet Emmie Beery: Leader In and Out of the Office

by xcellentatl in Leadership, Team

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Xcellent ATL team! This month, we are giving ourselves the gift of appreciation, specifically for our impeccable and hardworking team. This month, we’ve decided to sit down with Emmie Beery, an AT&T Sales Representative Leader, here on our team about life and success.

Emerald Alexandria Suzylyn Beery, Emmie for short, was born in Griffin, Georgia. She remembers moving around until the fourth grade, when she moved to Senoia, Georgia. Beery spent the rest of her childhood years in Senoia, until graduating from East Coweta High School. Beery was a social and studious kid, who kept up strong grades and did the makeup for her high school theater program. “In that environment, I spent so much time with actors and actresses,” says Beery, “it was a competitive environment, where everyone always wanted to get the best roles.”

After graduating high school, Beery attended the University of West Georgia and Kennesaw State University to study nursing. “I had no idea I would end up in this field,” says Beery, “I’ve always been a people person and enjoyed helping people, so it ended up being a perfect match.”

For Beery, her home life is what gives her strength. “My grandmother raised me alone and always did her best,” says Beery, “she was a role model for me and showed me that I should always try my best. I also have 4 cats, 3 are rescues, and 1 I rescued in the field.”

On October 30th, 2018, Emmie Beery joined the Xcellent ATL team. “I immediately noticed that everyone was really nice, positive, supportive, and dressed super nice,” laughs Beery, “the team was welcoming and fun like a family, but everyone is there to hold you accountable for actions.”

“Through this career, I have learned that anything is possible if you just put your mind to it,” says Beery, “you have to work as hard as you can to reach your goals. I have developed a more positive mindset and outlook on life, and I thrive when helping people and being that solution provider for them.”

As for her goals, Emmie Beery shows no signs of slowing down. “I want to learn as much as I can about the company and myself to get myself where I need to be to run an office,” says Beery, “I know all of my leaders are there for me if I need help with absolutely anything.”
