How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

Less than a year

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

Yes

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I've always loved helping others and as I looked around me it always puzzled me in my home that my aunts and most family members were in the same line of work. I had this crazy theory way before knowing about personality and career assessments that people with different talents and passions should be in different fields. I started my very first business at the age of 18 writing resumes and from there became a career coach teaching others how to find and create careers they love. This sometimes meant leaving their corporate jobs and opening a business. This was the birth of me becoming a Business Strategist helping women navigate their professions and businesses. I also offer design services which I joke about all the time because I sort of fell into design and have been in love ever since. Many of my business strategy clients end up needing a website or graphics to build their brand after we build their business. It was in that moment I realized that I not only have a gift to help women create their business but also communicate their vision digitally. I am a Business and Brand Strategist + Designer committed to strategy and consistency as a resource for continued success of my clients. In addition I am the Founder of Lady Corporate Inc and The Workroom Boston.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

They would say what a relief it is to work with me. That having a strategist has cut down their frustrations and time spent spinning their wheels aimlessly. They would also say that I am very insightful and it is a joy to have a one-stop shop to build and design their brand.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear. - This quote and advice means the world to me because many of us allow fear of failure to never actually start. What ever you desire in your life career or business is literally yours if you tell fear to kick rocks.

What is your favorite book?

The Subtle art of not giving a f=8k

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

Self awareness + kindness.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

I would tell her its ok to make mistakes and its ok if they don't like you. Stay true to you. One day the Geeks become Gorgeous and the Glass Ceilings become Grass. In you is the power to change everything around you. You just have to believe in you.

How do you enjoy your free time?

I love spending time with my kids and trying new restaurants. I am a total foodie

What is something that not many people know about you?

I was raised in Birmingham UK. I've never used the words grandma or grandpa because of this. I have a nan and grandad and when I say it around my friends its truly the most tickling thing ever.
