Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.
I am an attorney & corporate strategist, have raised my awesome 19 year old son as a single mom while juggling my own businesses for 19 years, and am now leveraging my skills in the courtroom to the corporate conference room by helping entrepreneurs secure funding & capital.

Perseverance, organizational skills, professional communication skills.
What is one of your most memorable career accomplishments?
Helping a single mom with couple of kids resolve issues with her deadbeat & bullying business partner so that she can move forward with her business successfully. Success is not always about the mighty dollar, but how one can help another achieve their goals.
What are some career challenges on your radar?
Networking more efficiently & growing my book of business with industry leaders.
What project have you worked on that you’re most proud of? Why?
Securing funding for a corporate life sciences client that is in clinical phase of developing brain barrier molecule technology to fight Alzheimer's & Parkinson's Disease. The Michael J.

We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?

What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Knowing that I gave 110% to support and foster my client's goals.
What legacy do you hope to leave through your work?
More women in top positions in the legal and financial industries.
What is it about your job that makes you feel it’s the right fit for you?
The "personal" level of communications - in a world that seems harsh and self-serving, treating clients with compassion and understanding goes a long way.
