Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Houston 9 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 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!
