Background & History
Tracy and Jon McGlothian formally established The Mt. Olivet Group, LLC in August 2007. Under the VA Beach Sewing Solutions (www.vabss.com) banner, Tracy focused on sewing and embroidery for local trade events and local social groups. Over time, it has evolved into a full-service sewing and embroidery business that services the military market, small companies, and nationally known social groups. Under the tagline, “concept to completion,” she has brought numerous ideas to life for entrepreneurs and also provides a complete one-stop shopping for all of your sewing and embroidery needs. She is one of the few embroiders that can provide both sewing and embroidery services. Wishing to share her love of sewing with others, she has taught over 500 students in the local market the art of sewing. In 2010, Jon began providing Project Management Services as well as training Project Managers. Over time, this has expanded into creating and delivering customized Professional Development Programs for military commands and corporations under the TMOG Learning Center (www.tmogllc.com) banner. In 2019, the TMOG Learning Center was “Certified To Operate by the State Council of Higher Education – Virginia” and began operating as a Vocational Post Secondary School specializing in developing project managers.
