About Me: 

I am the Director of the Women's Business & training Center located in the heart of the rural Appalachian region in the United States. I started the Center five years ago with the help of four amazing women. Three of which still work with me today. My passion for women entrepreneurs started over twenty years ago when I worked part-time for a small one women owned and operated business. Her strength and growth over the years continue to mentor me. She is now one of our business consultants and trainers.

My Passions: 
Helping people, especially women find their road to prosperity
My Challenges: 
Trying to help on too large a scale for our budget
My Vision for the Future: 
Economic independence for all women
My Areas of Expertise: 
Business Planning, Financing, and training
