Favorite quote: “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.” — Rudyard Kipling

Fun fact: I work as a broadcaster for University of Miami men’s and women’s tennis matches through the ACC Network/ESPN.

How do you unwind after a long day of work? Cook a family dinner while my daughter dances in the kitchen.

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? My first job straight out out of college required me to travel all over the world, and to many countries where I did not speak the language. Working with people from all over the world and coordinating logistics, as well as being the go-to person on the ground to manage a world class athlete taught me to think on my feet and react quickly and no matter what to get the job done efficiently. There will always be setbacks and problems that occur out of your control, but it is how you handle them and make the best of the situation and move forward.

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? Being hired by Venus Williams as her Executive Assistant straight out of college.

Who are your role models? My two grandmothers, Sybil and Mila, my mother, Karen, and sister, Alyssa.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? Push yourself outside of your comfort zone, that’s where the reward is.

What advice would you give a young woman at the start of her career? Dig deeper into who you are and what you really want to do, listen to the advice of people who walked the path before you, and then forge your own path by staying true to yourself. Always continue to learn and adapt by listening and reading. Stay on top of your game, and never settle.

How does being a woman has impacted your career? I believe it has given me more opportunities than I could have imagined. Being a female athlete afforded me a college scholarship, where I learned some of the most valuable lessons in competition, adversity, and toughness that carry over into my career everyday. I believe women now have endless possibilities in athletics and education, and I have always taken advantage of the opportunities in front of me. I have worked with some amazing women that taught me to never give up, sometimes you just have to pivot.
