What do I care about?
I care deeply about dismantling systemic racism in America. I believe that, in the land of the free and home of the brave, everyone should have the right to build generational wealth without structures that hinder their upward economic mobility. I care about moving Interise’s mission forward—toward an economy that works for all.

Why Interise?
Born and raised in rural South Carolina, I witnessed my parents labor tirelessly in our family’s small business. It was my parents’ fortitude and courage that inspired me to work with small business owners. By being a part of Interise’s mission, I hope to build sustainable businesses that uplift all communities.
