“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” – Dolly Parton, Actress and MusicianOver a decade ago, I recognized the need for unique training opportunities that address the challenges women continue to face in the workplace – and thus the seed was planted for Progressive Women’s Leadership. I am so proud our program is still going strong, and that our community continues to grow. As the Product Manager, I have the privilege to work with, meet and serve amazing women, and I am continually awed by the stories of determination and true grit we hear from our audience.
“Some people say ‘Never let them see you cry.’ I say, if you’re so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone.” – Tina Fey, Actress, from Bossypants
I have always been passionate about helping others, so being the Content Coordinator for Progressive Women’s Leadership has been amazing. Every day I learn more and have the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with our community. There is nothing quite like the pride I feel coming to work, knowing that we are making a difference, helping women advance and excel. I am excited to work with this amazing team to bring quality education and content to the community.
“Don’t give up, don’t take anything personally, and don’t take no for an answer.” —Sophia Amoruso, American Businesswoman
At 12 years old, I started working as a busser at my family’s restaurant, and it was there that my passion for customer service blossomed. Even at a young age, I learned valuable skills such as time management and the significance of building relationships with customers. Now, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to support my fellow sisters in enhancing their leadership, communication, and networking abilities. My hope is that our community can empower others on their path to success.

Growing up, I had amazing role models teaching me what it means to truly be a woman leader. When I received the opportunity to join the Progressive Women’s Leadership team as a Marketing Operations Specialist I was ecstatic. While I have worked in the operations and marketing field for about three years, I have truly found a passion for my work in building up other women! In my position with Progressive Women’s Leadership, I strive to create an empowered and inclusive environment that allows women to learn, grow and thrive!

I’ve been a news and business writer for almost 25 years, covering everything from crime and passion to customer service and management. There have been exciting assignments, and this one – covering women and their leadership – is certainly one of them. I’ll put a love for digging up the best research, expert advice and newest trends to work for our audience of women in leadership roles. The goal: Give you all the resources you need to lead others, get ahead in your career and keep it all in balance.
