I watched as all the major investment firms left my county wondering why and who would be available to serve our needs? I knew that it may take time, a lot of sweat equity, vision, and determination but told myself that I want to use my skills and knowledge to be of service to my community. I know and understand that equipping woman with the financial tools to make better decisions will change families and that impacts my community. I understand that there are a small percentage of woman in the financial advisory field so I want other women and girls to see me and know that they too can become successful in this industry.
