What is one word that describes you perfectly?


What advice would you give to the next generation of female leaders?

Find something that you are truly passionate about and don’t be afraid to bet on yourself.

What makes you happy?

Helping others and volunteering my time. We don’t all have the same amount of money but we all have time and the gift of time is often more valuable than money.

How do you measure success?

Success is having a purpose that is meaningful to me. I measure success by the number of lives we’re able to touch or impact.

What historical event inspired you the most.

The women’s rights movement.

What is your favorite quote and why?

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”

-Mohatma Ghandi

When we serve others, we learn about ourselves in the process. We learn compassion, humility, and gratitude but most importantly we learn to love others.
