I believe in the WEW as it creates a space for collaboration and not competition. Over the past several years of being a chapter leader it has been a joy to support women in all different industries and bring them together to collaborate on so many different levels. I have made personal friendships with these women that we feel like a family. I wouldn’t have been able to do that if it wasn’t for WEW.
Can you describe a memorable networking relationship?
A memorable event that I have had was creating happy hour networking events to provide a different experience and space to network. Not everyone can make it for lunch. To do something outside of the luncheons has provided opportunities for those women to connect freely. One of the last events I created was a Mardi Gras Themed Trivia Night. It was a night of fun, excitement, and just letting loose.
What are some present and/or past organizations you have been a part of?
I lead another women’s group with the St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers. I also am contracted out by the Urban League Metropolitan St. Louis Women’s Business Center. I am active within the G.R.I.T. community, am a member of the Asian American Chamber of Commerce, and I create my own happy hour networking events under my business.
