On Mentorship

“I was the first woman in the history of my family to attend college, which has shaped my life. I had no role models in professional careers and had to learn a lot on my own. It’s important to listen and learn first, gaining the confidence and knowledge to become a leader. It’s rewarding to share my knowledge and experience with people from my background and see them succeed. I tutored in high school and college and mentor in my profession. I was drawn to PWC because of their Mentor Program and the intelligent and driven women in our industry.”
