This special section features some of our city’s most accomplished female leaders. These women represent a wide variety of fields, from finance and education to interior design, health care and more. Join us in saluting them in our third annual Women of Distinction!
Was there a moment in your career when you realized you could open your own business? Or was that always a goal?That’s always been my dream. I love what I do. I even more so love my clients. They made the transition easy by helping me succeed at Fringe. There weren’t a ton of obstacles – it was more or less running full speed and not looking back. Every year is a better year than the year before.
What is some advice you have for young women who would be interested in starting their own business?Having confidence and knowing that you can do it is huge. I tour a lot of MATC students in the design school. These young women ask me for advice, and I say you have to have a strong support team behind you cheering you on. My family stuck by me and said, ‘You can do this.’ That builds confidence to say, ‘You’re right. I can do this.’
