A bit about me, I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, employee and volunteer. I am married and have two children - one who aspires to be a secret spy ninja and the other wants be a doctor for toys like DocMcStuffins. I'm all about the Business of Life as I'm constantly trying to juggle my multiple roles. I come from a corporate finance background and during that time I started a women's group which still exists today. It was during that time that I became exposed to Plaid for Women and sought encouragement and advice through the resources. I'm so excited to be the President of Plaid for Women, and am passionate about providing a platform for women to #BeHeard. As you know, this organization is full of powerful, supportive women and I'm honored to be in this role.
