Best business decision: “Moving to Richmond 18 years ago. My husband and I relocated here for our careers in 2004, uncertain how long we would stay and without any support system. Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to successfully establish ourselves in the local business community and have grown deep roots in central Virginia. We are enamored by all the culture, history and natural beauty this area has to offer.”
Mistake you learned the most from: “Over the years, I’ve learned that prioritizing relationships and creating genuine, authentic connections with others is paramount. Everything else will get figured out if we remember that we are all human beings and treat each other as such.”
