What role has the support of other women played in your success?

The support of women has played a huge role in my success, particularly women in my family. My mother’s strength despite adversity and my three sisters being my biggest cheerleaders and confidants have always been a huge motivation for me.

What would you tell other women about overcoming obstacles?

Look deep within yourself about the issue and how you can confront it. Talk to someone who can help you prevail over the obstacle. Keep in mind, as I do, this quote from Oprah Winfrey, “There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”

What does receiving the Onyx Woman Leadership award mean to you?

I’m very honored to be a recipient of this award. People often point to and praise my service in this community and beyond. However, in reality, I have benefited more than I can say from the women, children, and all those underserved in Pittsburgh communities.
