Passionate About Inspiring Others
I was raised and surrounded by 3 strong women: My grandmother, a southern cotton-picker; My Aunt, a prom queen and most popular in her class; and My mother, a go-getter banker who was the life of a party! Each one taught me something different: be a hard worker despite your limitations and disadvantages; how to dress and present myself as a woman with confidence; and putting education and career first to surpass my peers.
Out of pure necessity to succeed and scared of what my life would become if I failed and became nothing, I studied at Purdue University and built my career obtaining various key roles working in Manufacturing, Hospitality, Transportation and the Healthcare industry at CVS, Motorola, Hyatt, Allstate, Navistar and GE Transportation based in Chicago within Tech. During this time I received my MBA from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, which led me to pursuing my lifelong desire of entrepreneurship. To provide career advice that is relatable and enriching to the community. Motivation and support is a key factor in driving success. I am here to provide just that.
