I am solution driven and help to determine measurable as well as sustainable programs. Beginning with data from surveys, assessments, interviews and questionnaires, I gather insight to guide organizations to implementation. I am an advocate for supplier diversity across the business ecosystem, ensuring that under resourced professionals and companies in the hospitality, meetings, events and tourism industries are afforded access to professional development, procurement and opportunities that result in economic empowerment.
