Share a little about your entrepreneurial journey. And, do you come from an entrepreneurial background?
I took the leap in 2014 and started my entrepreneurial journey. It has been the scariest yet most exciting 5 years of my life. The best decision I made was to find a great mentor and coach and consistently stretch myself to be better. I have had some hard knocks and some incredible victories. The greatest learning so far is that people are my greatest asset and the magic sits in unlocking human potential.

Having the privilege of empowering people and serving them through my leadership.
