What woman in your life has been the greatest source of inspiration to you? My mother, via my grandmother. They are kind and taught me generosity and boundaries.
What does it mean to be extraordinary? Being extraordinary is going above and beyond the call and becomes a call of its own.
How do you hope to inspire the next generation of women? I work and do knowing the best reward is the success of the next generation of women.
What motivates you to do your extraordinary work? Other extraordinary women remind me of how large the world is. Making my piece better is my way of honoring them.
