I wrote a job description, interviewed and hired a first partner in Ops Tech (direct report), Ernie Denizard at the beginning of 2021. Being able to help develop someone and myself is the greatest achievement.
I co-lead the Black Lives @ KFC group with Nina Meadows. I have monthly calls with the KFCHD minority team alongside of Brandy Draper. I also make sure I am speaking out and voicing the pain and struggles that minorities have been going through in my life during 2020.
My Father. He has paved the way for me and my family to grow, develop and live a life to help others.
I try to live my life like water - “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
