INNOVATION

“I’m building innovative solutions that give the power back to the people.”

My Why

Everything I have ever built, led, or changed was an opportunity for me to pay it forward for everyone after me. I wasn’t born into money, legacy money, or even the right zip code for decent public school education. As a bi-racial, bi-sexual, 1st generation college student who grew up in the Washington D.C. are for the majority of my childhood, I saw myself in the people who were often being left out of the conversation. 

 

As I climbed the corporate ladder in my career, I found that organizations were leaving out a large portion of the population in the way they built new products and services.

Whether it was womxn, minorities, low-income households, not college-educated, and even LGBTQIA+ communities, I constantly found myself struggling with the idea that 'what we were doing right' was enough.
