"What an honor and privilege to be inducted into the NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame! I'm still pinching myself! When I look at the diverse
class of inductees, I'm reminded of just how much impact women have on our great state! Having worked in a non traditional role for nearly twenty
years and forged my own path through perseverance and resilience, I am so proud of myself and the rest of the inductees for setting the
bar high and proving that you can do anything you set your mind to! Strong networking and support from one another, as well as
investing in others, are the keys to success in my book. I so honored and humbled to be in such an elite class of women!"
