What are the 3 words you would use to describe yourself?
Multifaceted. Energy. Happiness.
What is your biggest fear about the future?
Not realizing my full potential.
What would be the title of your memoir and why?
Pass the Baton
I strongly believe in the power of collaboration and inclusivity. I believe we all have a story to tell which may assist the next person in getting the seat at the table at a faster or less painful process than the person who has already been through that journey.
What gets you out of bed every morning?
My minions ❤️
What is your definition of success?
It’s personal and not for the next person to understand.
One fun fact about you?
I used to be extremely shy!
