Q: What is the greatest motivator for the work that you do?
A: I see the gap in menstrual health as an opportunity to fill it.
Q: Did you have any key mentors or people who deeply influenced you to continue your current path?
A: My father. 22 fibroids, a divorce, and getting fired left me with my tail between my legs. My father lifted my head and my spirits by encouraging me to keep going.
Q: When you think of the future of FemTech and the work you plan to do through BUPeriod what gives you a sense of hope?
A: Knowing that one out of three Black little girls will be told "You have fibroids," gives me hope that I can be someone who guides them through the challenges that come with that.
