I am at my best when surrounded by those of us in pursuit of our dreams and asking “how can we get there?” I believe even in the most ambiguous and challenging situations there is a way to move closer to our aspirations. So I dive in with insatiable curiosity and leverage my gifts to discover pathways and methods to prove we can get there. I apply what I discover to coach, teach, and write so that others may gain clarity and confidence in their ability to achieve. I currently serve as the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business Executive Director of Entrepreneurship Programs where I mentor and guide practitioners, design curriculum, teach entrepreneurship/leadership, and in partnership with the Ford Fund design and deliver the Henry Ford Entrepreneurship Academy in the Middle East, Africa, and US. I keep my entrepreneurship skills honed as a founder of several startups and have served as an appointed member of the Virginia Governor’s Council for Youth Entrepreneurship and currently sit on several community boards.
