Company Description

SheEO Academy empowers the CEO in every girl to take steps towards business leadership or ownership through our afterschool classes, camps and clubs. Our vision is to tell her she can “be a SheEO”! For over 10 years, we have been working with community partners to provide our proprietary hands-on curriculum and engaging instruction to families of girls ages 6-16. SheEO Academy has been featured
locally in the Fredericksburg Parent and Family, Washington Parents Magazine and nationally in USA Today.

When & why I joined NAWBO

I had intentions of rejoining a local NAWBO chapter for some time now. I have attended events and networked with many of the local members. But it was the need for a sisterhood of other women business owners during the loneliness created by the pandemic that forced
my hand.

When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?

As a business owner with three daughters (two at home), I don’t recall the last time I had 30 minutes of true free time. So I guess I would spend it on self-care.

What is your favorite knock-knock joke?

Knock knock. Who’s there? The interrupting cow. The interrupting c… moo! (from the animated movie Home)

What is one superpower you’d choose to have?

I would choose the power to heal the sick.

Your favorite quote is:

“Whatever happy looks like, do that!” by me.

Name a person (living or dead) who inspires you. Why

My grandmother and great aunt. The first Black female entrepreneurs I knew.

What sound do you love?

My daughters laughing (second to waves crashing at the beach)

What’s your most used phrase?

“Don’t say can’t, say how.”
