Detail a day in your life — from wake to sleep.

Ensure my kids are set for school and I get myself ready for work. I then do my daily bible reading and drive to work. I try to listen to the radio every day to know issues and politics in my country. Once I get to work and prepare myself breakfast I get to my inbox, read pending emails and attend to them. I am in meetings throughout the day and my main focus is to engage our team. Before I head home, I ensure to document pending issues for the next day and prep tomorrow’s to-do list. I then get home and prepare my family for the next day.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received?

Drive your passion to achieve results

What is one word or phrase that describes your leadership style?

One team one mission … It is key for me to manage the emotions of each member of my team


The Women in Tech campaign exists to help redefine what women in technology means in the 21st century. Started independently by a group of professional women who, after many impassioned discussions about women in tech knew we wanted to expand this definition beyond ‘traditional’ technology skills. To us, it includes most every current, emerging or evolving role within an organization. By featuring leaders and emerging leaders across industries who embody this we hope to collectively ‘stand up’, be proud of our place in the digital world and inspire young women or those new to the ‘tech space’ to get involved.
