Denim is The New Black
What do you think is the most significant barrier to female leadership? How have you overcome it?
I think women hold themselves back. If they can get out of their own way, there is no stopping them.
What are you most proud of in your career?
Homeschooling both my kids is my number one accomplishment and proudest moment. My second proudest moment is getting out of my own way and partnering with women I met online to create my amazing business Denim Is The New Black.
What are your biggest challenges moving forward?
Growing my business. Getting the word out about who we are and what we do.
Why do you support women in business?
Because I was a mom for many years and sacrificed a lot to do what I did (homeschooling my kids, raising our family), I know it can be very hard to start over a new career at later stages in life, so it's important to support women in that endeavor. Women have multi-faceted skills, and many women are underutilized, not realizing their value to their world.
What are the ways you stay grounded and take care of yourself?
I go to the gym every day with my blind neighbor. He inspires me to be the best version of myself. I also read many books.
