As a serial entrepreneur, organization leader and community member I have worked with a variety of stakeholders to create inclusive economic development.
My passion is in identifying and implementing best practices, policies, and programs to create a strong foundation for a thriving entity. I love leading communication/marketing campaigns, guiding teams of skilled individuals from campaign introduction to completion, and empowering staff members to work cohesively in a productive way to complete objectives.
Challenges are an opportunity for us to achieve greater accomplishments through shared experiences, relationship building, and community involvement.
Out of everything I have learned, the most important has been the sheer resilience communities have when they are invited to participate.
As an entrepreneur, I learned many business skills the hard way. Through my second business book, 12 Healthy Habits of Business Leadership you won’t have to. My book provides business leaders with key elements to propel themselves and their companies forward.
We need to include every person in the process of building community. Some of my favorite organizations include:
- Safe World for Women
- Net Impact
- Buumbalambo Foundation
- B Lab – serves a global movement of people using business as a force for goodTM
- Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Walk
- Raleigh Symphony Orchestra
- NC State University Public Relations Student Society of America
- American Foundation for Suicide Prevention North Carolina chapter.
