Employee Spotlight - Margaret Kamara

TSG Reporting prides itself on the dedication and talent of those that make up our team. Each individual that encompasses TSG Reporting adds value and represents the company with dignity and professionalism. They will always go above and beyond for their clients.

We are dedicated to making our clients’ lives easier, anticipating their needs, and solving problems with unrivaled responsiveness.

We invite you to follow us as we turn the spotlight onto the different individuals who make us who we are. You will get to learn their unique talents, interests and what continues to drive, inspire and motivate them to bring their best to TSG and those we serve.

What brought you to TSG?

I had just made the decision to pivot from working as an IP paralegal to something else when Jackie Geller (my TSG representative at the time) recruited me to join the TSG family. I was curious about the work and the timing was perfect.

What is your favorite part about working at TSG Reporting?

I enjoy interacting with the various departments and admire how passionate everyone is about their contribution towards helping the company grow and providing a great experience for clients.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I have always been a champion for the voiceless. I majored in journalism and international affairs in hopes to be a foreign correspondent for Al Jazeera. However, I graduated from Northeastern University during the Great Recession, and decided it was best to go a different route. I have a lot of love for journalism and storytelling and find ways to stay connected to the field through podcasts, NPR, and traveling the world.

What is your biggest achievement to date? Personal or Professional:

I have a food business based in DC, which my family helps me operate. We offer the District a food journey to Africa, Caribbean, and down South (North America, soul food) through special events, wholesale of products, meal preps, and catering. You can find our products at The Fresh Food Factory Market and the Good Food Market + Café, markets that support local makers like myself.

I recently teamed up with a local DC brewery – Hellbender Brewery Company and we made a cocktail beer using my family’s Ginger Beer recipe and we called it the Ginger Mash Up.

How do you balance your career and personal life?

My dogs – Twilight Blue and Lola Lavender keep me on track, along with my family and friends. I am from Sierra Leone but I have spent more than half my life in Northern Virginia and DC area so I have a good support system here. Because I technically work seven days a week, when I can, I travel the world to rejuvenate. This year I want to Mexico, Saint Maarten, The Bahamas, and Greece.
