What made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in technology?
I’ve always had a love and interest in the mechanics and operation of technology. The interesting thing is that my career did not start in technology. I actually stumbled into the technology industry through sales. That is the beautiful thing about technology: Everyone is part of it, even if they don’t realize it. The added beauty for me is that combining sales with technology has created amazing opportunities for me to give back. Servant leadership is at the heart of everything I do, and my career in technology continuously allows me to serve in meaningful and fulfilling ways. I am extremely thankful.
What three adjectives would you use to describe your journey in the industry so far?
Positive, adaptable, and growth-minded.
Always stay positive, no matter what.
Be adaptable and ready to constantly change.
Always be willing to learn, so you can continue to grow.
What is your personal mantra?
Be your authentic self. In the words of Dr. Seuss: “Today you are you, that is true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
Describe the highest point in your career so far and how you got there, including all the hurdles you had to jump (and the ones you tripped over and too).
The highest point in my career so far was creating an amazing organization and being recognized for it by the Dallas Business Journal. Most importantly, I have an amazing team of educated, intelligent, and loving women that are equally as invested in the mission as myself. There have been a lot of ups and down. We’ve had struggles —most notably while working through COVID. But, since our team is so resilient, strong, and united, we went global in 2020 in spite of COVID.
What is your most admirable quality?
I embrace who I am and acknowledge and accept my flaws without apology. I am who I am.
