Today’s guest is an award-winning executive with over 30 years of experience. She has climbed the corporate ladder across multiple sectors, including high tech, consumer and nuclear sensors, aerospace, film production, and glass manufacturing.
To say that she had a unique and difficult start in life is a major understatement. At just 18 years old, she fell blindly in love with a pimp and ran away with him. Tragically, most women who are targeted in this way never escape. She not only escaped but thrived.
She wrote about her true-crime experience in her first book, “Never a $7 Whore,” which was a #1 hot new release on Amazon. Her second book, “The Daytime Lives of the Ladies of the Night” details lessons learned from her time spent living with the Ladies of the Night, And the third book in this four-part series about her life is “Bullets and Bosses Don’t Have Friends,” which shares how to assume leadership with the serious edge you need to succeed in the corporate world.
On her journey from a lady of the night to the lady in the boardroom, she became certified as Professional Engineer, a Six Sigma Black Belt, a Certified Professional Manager, trained in Japan and was inducted into the New York YWCA Academy of Women Leaders. Currently, she is the President and CEO of her own company, Just Once.
