What inspired you to do what you do professionally?
I want to encourage and help others find their purpose and reach their full potential. I am inspired by Zig Ziglar’s quote “You can have everything in life you want if you just help enough other people get what they want.” #hopedealer
Tell us a story of how you made a difference in someone’s life.
My niece lived in Los Angeles, CA with her 4 kids and was really struggling as a single mom. She didn’t work, was completely dependent on welfare, and didn’t really have any positive influences around her. She had visited us a couple times in Arizona and saw an opportunity here to improve her situation. I helped her over several months find housing, a job and the needed assistance and resources for her to make the move. This was in 2007; fast forward now 10 years she has lived here, has worked in the same career now for the last 10 years and is nearly completely independent of any welfare services. I continued over those years to pour into her belief in herself and as much positive example as I could. She has grown leaps and bounds and I am so proud of her. She never finished high school and has now graduated 2 of her 4 children from high school and the younger two are well on their way. She has changed the trajectory of her family and I am happy that God allowed me to play a small role in that change.
What have you gained personally from being a member of Chicks Connect?
I could write a book on this!! I have gained so much. Chicks has given me a tribe of women who inspire me, help me grow, teach me, hold me accountable and above all else love me. We all come into this looking to give first and what we get in return in tenfold.
What have you gained professionally from being a member of Chicks Connect?
Because we build authentic lasting relationships, organically I have gained many of the Chicks as loyal customers and even partners in business. Even more valuable is how much I have learned from the other women in our group, valuable business tips and tricks.
Any words of wisdom for other Chicks?
Chicks Connect is so different than any other group I’ve been a part of. Plug in and connect with women in your chapter and take advantage of the amazing resources that Jewels Muller provides for us. There is so much value that we can tap into.
