Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Houston eight 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 on leadership + ways to prosper in the workplace written mostly by men. 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 + through my writings I help savvy, entrepreneurial-spirited, women turn their great ideas into a business that 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!
