relationships with leaders across the world. She advises the American and other governments around the world, as well as development institutions, firms and organisations.

Considered a leading expert on trade and development, Freeman has published 14 books since 1999. She founded the All American Small Business Exporters Association, which she describes as a community service, in 1998  "I had import and export knowledge and experience, and I wanted to share it with economically and socially disadvantaged minorities and women," she says. At that time, there were no import or export organisations that exclusively focused on minorities, women, and immigrants.Freeman holds a Ph.D. in Applied Management and Decision Sciences from Walden University, a Master of Science in Management and undergraduate degrees in Psychology and History from Carnegie-Mellon University.
