I am proud of my experiences in college joining the GWU Cheerleading team and finish Top 5 in the country. Upon graduation I started full time to work at Architectural Ceramics, Inc. doing outside and inside sales.

Over the years I have managed showrooms and many employees. I have gained invaluable experience from business groups like EO and Vistage. Since 2019 I have been President of now re-branded ACI to Architessa.
