She understands while it is important to have the skills needed to advance in your career, your choices in wardrobe, as well as personal appearance, are equally important and count as “non-verbal communication.” She is a Fashion and Beauty Matchmaker, a Public Speaker and a Mentor. She is also a member of two organizations, one of which helps with the art of Public Speaking and the other is a High School Outreach program to help girls attend college and begin their careers in communications/media.
