How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

Over the course of my career I have had the benefit of mentoring from several fabulous, intelligent, and funny women.  I believe that there is always more to learn, and hope that I will continue to meet great people who can share advice and guidance.  In turn, I hope that I can share my experiences and expertise through mentoring and can assist in empowering others to succeed.
