What do you like most about working at Rung?

I beam with pride when someone asks me where I work. I appreciate working for an organization that is truly changing the trajectory of women’s lives for the better.

What challenges do you face most in your current role?

The firsts! Rung is still a new organization with so much left to explore and then refine. We do so well to focus on intentionality and strategic planning for everything. But there are still those nervous jitters right before we execute a plan. “Does this make sense? Will this even work? Will this be impactful? Is this too wild of an idea?”

What project have you had the most fun working on?

Revamping the Career Readiness was incredibly rewarding. The volunteers loved the training and the experience. The cross-collaboration between Regina, Precious, Katie G., and myself was so productive! After the last Resume Reviewer training, Precious, Regina, and I had to group hug because of the pride and joy we felt from creating and implementing something with success.

Who are some of your professional sheros?

I have always said that my biggest accomplishment is friendship. There are some outstanding women in my life who have lifted me, encouraged me, motivated me, reeled me back in, told me I’m not as funny as I think I am, and navigated some life-changing events together—all with unconditional love. So, thank you, Natalie, Paige, Alyssa, and Paula, for being the women who have brought me this far. And always, my girl, Shirley [Chisholm], “Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.”

How do you feel that your work at Rung has impacted the organization?

I love making meaningful connections. Connecting the right volunteer or speaker can make a difference for members and staff.

What top professional advice would you like to share?

Trust your intuition. If it doesn’t sit right, it probably isn’t. If it feels like divine intervention, keep going.
