My Background

In 2007 I left my last job and launched my business. Everyone said I shouldn’t. I had a good job, was making good money, and I had allowances and yearly travel opportunities. But I felt like I had outgrown that stage and space in my life.

I wanted to try my hand at meeting a need in the market I felt was under-served. If it didn’t work, I could always try for a new job. I had to give my dream a chance. Fast-forward to 2018, I’m still here, doing the work I enjoy, helping businesses do their best work and put their best face forward. 11 years in full-time self employment – what a journey! I would not have it any other way.

I believe we all win when more women start businesses and stand in leadership roles. It matters not if that business is a one-woman shop or multinational corporation. The point is that women are making strides in empowering themselves economically and standing in positions of leadership.

Through my work at FemmePowered I help women share their talents, skills, and ideas with the people their work matter. I do this by providing them with the support, tool, and resources they may need, tapping into my arsenal of experience, skills, and my education.

Someone once said entrepreneurship involves living for a while like no one wants so you can live the rest of your life like most won’t. There’s merit in the statement. In the past 11 years, I have had some fat years and lean years in business. I’ve cried a lot, felt alone and misunderstood, and I have had many WTF moments. I’ve worked harder at my dream that I ever did for an employer and I had to give up a lot. I have no regrets. Whether the years were fat, lean or in between, it has always been worth it. Those years molded me into the woman and professional I am now and blessed me with the grit and grace to support others no matter where they are on their journey.
