What motivated you to become the leader (and/or business owner) you are today?
I am motivated by my staff and clients to build a great practice. One that not only provides the best client-centered service but also provides employment opportunities with work-life balance. As I got married and started my own family it was important to me to be able to put my best into parenting and family life as well as my work.
What advice do you have to those making their way into this business world?
Always trust your gut. There are lots of people that have great advice, hear them and gather all the information. But, that final decision is always yours and it is best to do what feels right for you.
