The young woman believes in the power of having a strong network for personal and professional development.

She is not only a top woman in the business community, but she is the top woman in her household in Jessup where she takes on her favorite role as "mom." She balances all she does for the business community with being the loving and dedicated mother of Ava, 3, and Benjamin, 1, and wife to Brandon. Being a working mom is no easy task, but she has set out to be a strong example for children to help them understand that they can achieve anything they put their mind to. She hopes they give back more to the world than they take.
