Power Women of NY

Thank You so much for this wonderful “Vickie” award. My husband and I truly enjoyed our time at the event and appreciated the opportunity to meet so many powerful women. This acknowledgement really meant a lot to me and has inspired to keep moving forward with helping minority women businesses get their fair share, so that one they can be recognized for their accomplishments. As discussed, I will be in touch very soon to talk about we may work together to help minority businesses succeed.
