How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

As the first female to become a lead analyst in my program, I am interested in being a resource for other women working in male-dominated fields.

I am also a single mother with a professional career–I know how hard it can be and believe parents need all the support they can get. I may not have the answers, but I am willing to be a resource or sounding board for other parents, and particularly single parents.


Other Information

I love to learn new things and connect people with each other and with new ideas. My leadership style is perhaps subtle, but I am passionate about my ideas and have the patience to see them through.
