Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Houston ten years ago in search of a new beginning. In the midst of my quest, I was beginning to navigate the career world without a compass. I would read popular books, mostly written by men, about leadership + ways to prosper in the workplace. While the readings did provide advice: it just didn't resonate as much with me as a young woman of color.
I started my lifestyle blog, ArYouSerious, to share my understandings of adversity and triumph in climbing the career ladder. I’ve held the titles of intern to Executive Director to entrepreneur. Through my writings I help inspire real confidence and encourage personal and professional development for women with serious goals. Together, we can change the world.
It is my desire that through this blog, women will be able to set and accomplish goals, drive-results and create the career and life she desires.
Thank you being part of my journey!
