Producing content and writing articles for has been a career highlight for me. After spending many years working as a television news anchor and reporter, I got married and started a family. Partnering with Entrepreneur Media, and publishing a book with Entrepreneur Press, has enabled me to stay relevant as a journalist and reach an international audience. Since becoming a VIP Contributor, I have interviewed everyone from corporate executives at companies such as Starbucks, Tesla, Wells Fargo, WW (formerly Weight Watchers) to first-time entrepreneurs. I have sat down with changemakers, philanthropists, and teen founders covering topics such as innovation, social impact and work-life balance. I love working with everyone at Entrepreneur and feel lucky to be in the Network.

I have been fortunate enough to spend a career working alongside some of the world's most prolific and visionary tech disruptors. The challenge is that these incredible visionaries are from under-represented populations. Over the last two years, Entrepreneur has given me the platform to share the voices of those entrepreneurs who shape our world every day and rarely get the coverage needed so that the rest of us can learn from their incredible insights.
