What made you want to become an entrepreneur in tech?
Technology and digital campaigns will drive all sectors and I started WomenWerk to gather the powerful creative and collective force of minority women. We need to be part of the growth, changes and opportunities to own the future.

WomenWerk was birth from my personal challenges navigating opportunities in technology. We don’t have enough mentors and sponsors that look like our tribe.

Flexibility with my time and the pride to be able to build out what you envision.
What are you an expert in?
Connecting people together to leverage power for good.
What advice would you give yourself before you started this company?
Be sure to understand every “supporter’s” motivation before you build with them.
When will you feel like your company is successful?
When we have a community of highly engaged and growing minority women across the country.
