How I can help you
I began Pearls With Purpose Foundation (501c3) a nonprofit, in 2002 in conjunction with Pearl Partners an LLC which works synergistically to create long term self reliance for disadvantaged women. To date I have trained over 300 women in Philippines, India, Thailand and Cambodia. The international work alongside with operating a business in America has given me a unique niche in the entrepreneurship world.
Prior to 2002 I did the traditional career path of 1-newspaper route (age 12), 2-Burger King (age 15) Retail clothing management at Jay Jacobs (16) and Coldwater Creek (age 38) Pizza Hut Delivery girl and Marie Calendars waitress (age 18) along with various other "money-making-skillset-building-tedious-hours-of-toil" jobs to launch myself into "Independent/contributing to society" adult.
