My passion is to connect with people to make our world a better place. I love working in the past, present and future scenarios to learn from our past, embrace our present and forge ahead to our future. We can help to support each other’s journeys and ensure we each keep to our unique truth through a culture of respect and kindness. WomenIN is my dream. A dream to have a community that builds strong resilient humans. That we support, empower, and lift each other up during everyday challenges and struggles. That we have the in understanding when things happen to us that shouldn’t, we know how to take care of our whole self – mind, body, and soul…together. It does take a village and together we can get through the dark times and our amazing moments in our lives.
I am passionate about unlocking potential and joy in my family, friends, and network. My purpose in life is to eliminate hate. I help bring more kindness into this world through my company ENTA where we animate business culture and through WomenIN where we uplift women and help them grow and succeed in all aspects of their lives. I often felt as though I could only be one thing or show up wearing only one hat. WomenIN is the group that allows me to show up as my whole self and be unapologetically me! I love this network of strong women who believe that we can make an equal opportunity future for all through growing ourselves and supporting each other. So, we can say and truly believe that “I am enough”.
