What I Do When I’m Not at Work

Go to class and work toward my MBA, advise the young women in my sorority, coach high school girls field hockey and middle school girls basketball

The Best Advice I Ever Got

Leave every meeting with a challenge or an ask.

If I weren’t doing this, I’d …

… be advancing and empowering women in another way.
