She is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and anticipates working with community partners to expand opportunities for women and young girls in technology. Her commitment to quality training is evident from her previous experiences as an Amazon virtual customer service trainer and team manager, and as a highly-ranked national trainer for Fortune 500 companies through SkillPath/CompuMaster.

She attributes her core leadership principles – process improvement, thinking big and continued learning – to the success of all her endeavors.
