She is executive director of The H.A.N.D, Up Project a anti-poverty and resource organization. Talethia is also CEO of her own Community Development consulting firm, where she believes the only way to revitalize community is by uplifting both the people and place simultaneously. Recipient of many community awards and accolades, Talethia served as lead on a resident led planning process called the Neighborhood First plan and received a $6.4M investment from her local government and Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), the largest investment made in the history of Tallahassee in the community of color. She is starting the Leaping For Literacy Program in her neighborhood to incentivize students for meeting their reading goals which has since expanded to include a community wide book drive that ensures children in Title I schools can build their personal libraries at home.
