I Didn’t Come Here to Sit Back

I struggle with carving out a place of my own when starting a new job or joining a new team, because many dynamics are already established. I don’t feel like I belong at work until people are trusting me to get things done on my own, or I’m doing those little things that make people […]

Traveling to Boston in late […]

Oprah and Me

“I certainly never could have imagined the yellow brick road of blessings that have led me to this point.” Oprah Winfrey said this statement and it resonates in my heart and mind about my life. My fascination in Oprah is perplexing to some people but to me in so many ways it is simple. In my […]
