I’m a Serial Entrepreneur, a Connector, as well as a Start-Up Enthusiast. My mind goes 100 mph and I have to understand the “why” and “how” behind everything. If you give me an idea, I want to make it better. If you challenge me, I’ll accept it. I love helping and seeing other small businesses grow and I love surrounding myself with people who inspire me, aren’t afraid of risks and live outside of the box. God is first in my life and I am nothing without Him. I have the most amazing boys, family and friends and I embrace my clumsiness, my inappropriate timed laughing and my many other quirks. I’m pretty ok being perfectly imperfect!
