I've worked in the financial and technology industry, both very male dominated fields for over 20 years where women were once few and far between. There were very little women in leadership roles and especially not anyone that looked like me. Fast forward 20 years and there are many women at the helm of some our country’s biggest companies.
These experiences hurt me so much but it never broke me to the point that I didn't continue being a mentor and support for others. I believe that these women were acting without fully knowing and loving themselves. Before we can truly walk with confidence we need to know ourselves fully. This is why I started my company Women on the Rise NY, Inc. to lend my talents to women that needed someone to support them while they are rising. A way to celebrate women that are working hard building a business and those still in working a full-time job honestly. I look back on all the great mentors I’ve had and I wanted women to stop hurting each other and to begin to love themselves and one another.
