Who's That Girl?
A little bit of this and that...
The most important thing you should know is that I am a red velvet cake connoisseur. I love it with cream cheese and pecans or walnuts but it absolutely should be made by someone's grandmother. Otherwise, I'll have a really bad day and you will too.
I have never been afraid to go against the grain, to ask the tough questions, and to walk boldly in new directions.
For over eleven years I co-owned an engineering and planning firm, I've found myself dreaming bigger, digging deeper, and daring myself along the way. In December 2020, we sold Nspiregreen but that hasn't stopped my passion for making sure we can all live in clean and healthier communities.
My life most resonates with the woman in Langston Hughes poem Mother to Son. "Well son, I'll tell you life for me ain't been no crystal stair." My story is truly one of tragedy, triumph, and sometimes comedy. But despite it all I continue to persevere for my business and my community.
