"It is such a blessing to know every day I am going to come to work and learn something new. I could be learning something from an interview on one of our platforms, from getting through a management hurdle I haven’t faced before, from researching, from our slack (a true treasure trove) or something from the business or events side of the brands"

And you really can make any dream you have for yourself a reality if you’re willing to work for it. I am living proof"
"Being an executive woman to me means owning my power and not apologizing for it. That power shows up for me as not conforming into the stereotype of what people expect of me as a lawyer, a black woman and an executive"
