As an accomplished swimmer, business owner, friend, wife and mother, I began to reflect on those that supported and mentored me through my professional career. As a woman entrepreneur, and an immigrant with an accent, the business world could be harsh. I persevered to achieve success. I have decided I wanted to help mentor women, to inspire them to believe in themselves and to set the bar high for what they want to get out of life. The WC will do exactly that.
