Proudest Moment: 

Professionally, becoming a partner in a global law firm was a great honor; even more so as a young black woman.

Making a Difference: 

I was one of the few out of my immediate family to go to college and obtain my degree and I think that it set the stage for both of my younger siblings who both went to college.

“I think one of the biggest things that is lacking in kids who come from disadvantaged backgrounds is this lack of hope and an understanding of how much opportunity there really is to do more than what they have seen. Seeing someone from their own neighborhood who has benefited from ACCESS can spark that belief in their own possibilities that is necessary to support their own drive.”
