Women’s History Month – Kesimy Medina  

This month, in honor of Women's History Month, we are honoring Rising Stars and Mothers of the Movement. Today, we are highlighting our first Rising Star, Kesimy Medina.

By Patrice Tillery

Kesimy Medina graduated magna cum laude from Methodist University, also receiving the Rebecca Woodward Wendelken History Writing Award and David G. Wilson Community Service Award. She honorably served in the U.S. Army for four years, including a peace-keeping deployment to Kosovo, as a part of her service to the Multi-National Battle Group-East with the 44th Medical Brigade headquartered in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Kesimy is a passionate team-player who loves to write, edit and show off her computer skills helping anyone navigate new technology.

Kesimy is also a performer and an advocate for local arts community, including her performance as Emmy in “Caroline, or Change”. She also sits on the board for Sweet Tea Shakespeare, a theater company in North Carolina. 

Though Kesimy started working in the gender-based violence field only six months ago, she has hit the ground running as Executive Assistant to our CEO, and takes great pride in supporting the movement.  She has streamlined productivity for the senior leadership team, paving the way for BWJP to become even more productive. She has always valued being a part of something greater than herself and after leaving the Army, feels that this job brings her personal, professional, and spiritual satisfaction. 

We are so grateful to have the pleasure of working with Kesimy every day. She is determined, intelligent, and always willing to help.
