What is a fun fact about yourself?
I learned how to write HTML code when I was 8 (thanks Dad!)

What three business tips can you share with others?

  1. No one can know everything. Find your niche & work at becoming an expert in that area
  2. Always know your worth! If you’re being asked to do something because of your skills, you deserve to be compensated fairly for them!
