"I like to take people on a journey which they will enjoy and cherish. Every time I provide a change or solution for a problem/scenario, it gives me a sense of happiness and a state of peace that enables me to help people more."

"As a business owner I appreciate the value of diversity and the perspective that women bring into the workplace. I want to give back by encouraging women into the IT industry, it’s not the geeky place it used to be."
