Tamika D. Otis

Steering Committee

A Consultant, Author, and Equity Warrior, Tamika’s mission is to empower people to live their best lives. Among numerous enterprises she had a hand in forming, Tamika’s most prized venture is the consulting firm she founded. Tamika founded KABOD Consulting Group LLC in 2016 in response to a growing need for culturally competent grant writing services in her community. In 2020, along with best friend and business partner, Summer Fitch, KABOD relaunched as a full-service consulting agency that takes a holistic approach to small business advising and organizational consultation and training including DEIB, Trauma Informed Practice, Emotional Intelligence and more.

Tamika currently serves as the Corporate Responsibility Officer and Community Relations Manager for KeyBank’s Central NY and Capital Region markets. She is also Co-Founder of the Black Women Give Foundation based in Philadelphia, PA where the collective giving model is utilized to fund impactful grants to grass-roots non-profit organizations serving communities of color in Southeastern PA.

Tamika believes in the power of storytelling in encouraging others to use their pain to create purpose, power, and peace. Her unique and relatable way of storytelling not only ushers in healing, but deliverance for all who have the opportunity to hear and learn from her story.

Tamika is a sought-after subject matter expert and speaker around the areas of Entrepreneurship, Economic Development and Racial Equity. She is the proud Mom of two sons, Christian, 19 and Braylon, 13.
