Chemist, Economist & Innovator
As a chemist, I create products that solve various problems with natural elements. As an economist, I understand how people’s behavior at the macro and micro-level level affect the broader economy. As an innovator, I use emerging technology to improve how we operate. Building upon these experiences, I bridge the digital and physical worlds to create better connections among people.
From research to sales, I have the unique skillset to take an idea from inception to revenue. By innovating highly-regulated industries, I have also gained a deep understanding of technology and policy. As we continue into a more digital economy, policy will continue to be challenged by innovation, and I serve as a liaison between innovators and policymakers.
As a humanist and futurist, I am passionate about workforce development as an investment in people, giving them the skills for a solid career trajectory. Being a Fellow for Opportunity Hub, I focus on strategic partnerships and fundraising to create programs that train and develop the talent pipeline for a technically savvy workforce. I also have served as a sales & business development mentor to the Ascend2020 program, a technology startup and small business support ecosystem for minority-led companies in the Atlanta area.
