Tell us about yourself

What motivates me daily is having the privilege to serve others. Being able to serve in the capacity to help someone else to enhance their quality of life by a better understanding of who/what they are.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I feel one of my biggest accomplishments as a business owner is the ability to start and manage three businesses that provide a service to the community. Being able to see a need in the community to address mental health and fulfill it is a mission and passion of mine.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

I believe one of the hardest things that I have had to overcome and still overcoming is a work/life balance at times. Being able to show up for my family, as well as my clients, can be challenging. However, finding this delicate balance and a great team has been my solution to being the best version of myself in all capacities.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Understand your strengths.
  2. Be willing to hire help when needed.
  3. Continue to stay humble.
