Washington DC native, with over 20 years of fine dining hotel and restaurant hospitality experience. I decided to leave the familiarity and become a solopreneur, to share my years of workflow optimization and solution-based strategies through staffing virtual assistants. In this age of the Great Resignation, I’m tackling the pain points of founders and owners, while navigating digital disruption.
