Tell us about the journey to your current leadership role? Were you recruited or did you ask for it?
My family raised me to be a "Leader and Not a Follower".
What advice do you have for other women considering stepping into a leadership role like yours?
Volunteer for positions where you have the most to offer and once you have done a phenomenal job you can request desired committees and other positions.
What topics do you love to mentor others on and teach?
Entrepreneurship, Real Estate, and Social Media
I first ask what they do for others before they ask for mentorship!
Social Media and Technology are my favorite topics.
What is your most treasured advice from a mentor?
Sometimes you have to volunteer more in order to volunteer at the level you desire to volunteer.
Was there anything else you'd like to share during our chat?
