Who are your biggest influencers and mentors personally & professionally and explain why? Jane Fonda was my mentor in high school. I grew up as a triple threat (singer, dancer, actress) in our performing arts program (where Jane Fonda noticed me and took me under her wing) but I was also a scholar. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to pursue opportunities as a performer or accept the full scholarship I received to attend Harvard University. And Jane Fonda looked me in my eyes and asked: "Who said you had to choose?" Now, when a two-time Oscar winner tells you that you can do anything, you tend to believe her. Being mentored by Jane Fonda completely took the limits off of my thinking, and that has allowed me to have a multi-faceted career and achieve groundbreaking success in multiple arenas, from entertainment to corporate finance to technology.

What exciting project are you working on? I am the Founder & CEO of Aquagenuity, an award-winning data analytics platform that helps consumers, corporations and smart cities understand what's in their water in real time instead of waiting until the next public health or economic crisis. Honored by Google for creating the "world's largest water database," Aquagenuity has been featured by WIRED Magazine, selected for technology implementation by Fortune 100s like Coca-Cola, received a Global Impact Fellowship from Singularity @ NASA Research Park, and will be launching our consumer product as a part of the United Nations Super Bowl 53 Global Game Village in Atlanta and United Nations World Water Day in March 2019. We have a team of 20 employees headquartered in Atlanta, GA and Aquagenuity will be available to consumers, corporations and smart cities in more than 100 cities internationally next year.

What are the lessons you've gained that have profoundly shifted your direction in business? Sometimes when you’re a female CEO, people don’t equate “cute” with “competence” or “pretty” with “powerful” technology. We are judged by our appearance much more than our male counterparts are. So as female entrepreneurs, we must never downplay who we are, but instead walk into every room leading with confidence, sharing our brilliance and vision with authority, and leading with love.

Your mantra? "You are unstoppable as long as you don't stop." --Doll Avant

Apple or Samsung why explain why? I am Team Apple all day. I tried switching to Samsung and Android a few years ago and it was the worst experience of my life! Apple's user interface is far superior; there's just no comparison.

What do you do for fun? I am a singer/songwriter, so I enjoy writing songs, recording in the studio, and performing live on stage with my friends, many of whom are Grammy-nominated writers, producers and musicians. I love to sing & perform!

What legacy do you want to leave behind? I believe that entrepreneurship is 21st century activism.  I believe that the answers to the biggest challenges in society are locked on the inside of aspiring female entrepreneurs all over the world. So, I am on a mission to create one billion dollars in new wealth by helping to create 1,000 new millionaires. This means that for every success and every new barrier I break in business, I have a responsibility to impart that same knowledge into the lives of other aspiring female entrepreneurs. And I believe that together, empowered female entrepreneurs can change our families . . . change our communities . . . change our cities . . . change our nation . . . and ultimately change the world.
