My Maven Superpower is … I am a connector – I enjoy meeting new people and building lasting relationships.
Best book I’ve read lately is … Own Your Greatness.
Self-care habit I swear by … Making time for enjoyment on a regular basis to unplug from my daily routine.
My first job was … Cashier/Hostess at Baker’s Square.
The best career advice I can offer is … As you go forward in your life, always check in with yourself. Learn to know who you are, what your values are and what makes you happy. Consider these things as you pursue your education and career aspirations because at some point you will come to a crossroads and will have to ask yourself if what you are doing really makes you happy.
A purchase I’ve been loving lately is … My new Hoka shoes; they are beyond comfortable and make me a few inches taller.
I feel most confident when … When I am prepared and positive.
My favorite local restaurant dish is … The Hawaiian roll from Blue Sushi Sake Grill.
The thing I’ve been binging lately is … Sweet Magnolias on Netflix.
A fun fact about me is … I am energized by positivity and love to laugh.
The skill I most want to learn is … How to improve my golf game.
My favorite nonprofit to support is … Ball State Women of Beneficence.
What have you achieved recently that you’d like to celebrate with our community?
I was featured in an article by the Ball State University Foundation as a member of Ball State Women of Beneficence to talk about the importance of women in philanthropy and then represented Women of Beneficence for the recent One Ball State Day.
What’s next for you? What can we expect to see over the next few years?
Continue to grow my coaching business and share the power of coaching with women and BIPOC leaders.
Why did you join Indy Maven?
I love women supporting each other to become more empowered and to break down barriers.
