What do you do and why?

I am a law graduate turned actress, author, and producer. In 2017, I published The Manifester’s Journey to empower people to follow their dreams by giving them the tools they need to succeed. I am also the host of The Manifester’s Journey Podcast where I release interviews with inspiring people who to continue the message of inspiration and courage. As an artist, I take great pride in bringing hope and motivation to people’s lives through my writing, acting, and as a host of the podcast.

My passion for this has only increased, and I strongly believe that it is my purpose to inspire others to follow their dreams.

What change would you like to enact in the world?

The change I seek to enact is to inspire people to be fearless when going after their deepest desires.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

My first dream was to be in the WNBA. I played basketball in elementary school and was the only girl allowed to compete with the boys team.

Why did you join IVY?

I joined IVY because I was looking to be a part of a national community where I would meet people with different backgrounds, careers, perspectives and overall diversity. I also love the aspect of attending talks and always being able to learn new information from leaders in their respected fields.

What has been your most memorable IVY Experience?

The new members’ cocktail hour has been my most memorable event. I remember meeting everyone and having such great conversations. We talked about our dreams, goals, and aspirations. I remember thinking, “now, this is an exciting community.”
