What are you proudest of in your life?
I am most proud of the fact that I have worked hard to put my family at the forefront of my decision making. I never want my family to feel like an afterthought to my career aspirations. Whether it involves career decisions, board service, or writing my book, I make sure that I keep in mind how each decision will impact my family.
How do you give back to the African American community?
It is critical that each of us take a role in supporting and uplifting the communities we come from. Personally,
I serve on the boards of several nonprofits including: Millennium Dance Company (Board Chair); The Council of Urban Professionals (CUP); the New York Leadership Council for the United Negro College Fund; and the Advisory Council for the Division of Economics & Business at Morehouse College. In addition to my board service, I volunteer with a local Cub Scout Pack in Detroit, Michigan and spend time mentoring students and professionals of all ages.
