What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? C4W has helped me grow both professionally and personally. I love the variety of experiences C4W offers.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? Since I’ve always been in the world of business, I’ve learned how to effectively and efficiently utilize my natural talents as a woman to navigate highly male dominated businesses.  Through great mentors, training and experience being a woman gives me great leverage to succeed.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to
succeed in today’s economy?
Be True to Yourself. We all have what it takes to be and create exactly want we want. Many times we’ve bought our culture’s definition of success versus pursuing our definition of success. When this happens we chase the next best thing and wake up to find ourselves unfulfilled. I learned a long time ago that true success, true happiness, comes from living
from the inside out. Once we start to live a life based on our values, our passions, our definition of success, everything starts to fall in to place and miraculous things start to occur. Know your truth and live accordingly!
