"I have worked within the private sector and within the public sector. I have both the will and skill to meet with any inquiry and build trust with community groups.
It is safe to say that as a young professional, I reflect the internal and external audience most corporations need to reach and influence. As a consultant I have access to a wide range of solutions and to people of different ages, ethnicities, and professions. I understand how social change works, and bridge the gap between profit and purpose."
