Why I mentor,,,

"So many of the opportunities that I have had in my career were because someone else gave me a chance or a hand up. I want to do the same for others. I also live by the philosophy of leaving a space better than I found it, and that extends to the workplace for women."

To me, ambition means...

"Ambition means setting out to achieve your goals no matter what. Don't let other people's limitations keep you from your plan."
