No single challenge has been greater for me as a leader than learning how to take better care of the people I lead, and to create a safe, supportive space in which they can thrive. Like most men I know, I grew up with very little modeling around empathy — the ability to recognize, experience and be sensitive to what others are feeling.

I graduated from Duke's Fuqua School of Business in December, 2012, and also completed a concentration in Entrepreneurship and Innovation in May, 2013. I created LeadershipGirl as a resource for entrepreneurs to help them grow their businesses. I am the mother of four school-age children, two boys and two girls. I lead three girl scout troops- two regular troops, and another special interest troop focused on international travel. I am also my youngest son's tiger den leader, because I was apparently bored. I am passionate about helping people grow to be a better version of themselves, and that we always have room to grow and improve.
