"My mother was an entrepreneur. She owned a large beauty shop in the Houston area. I watched her build the business from the ground up. Her tenacity helped me to gain legal experience in the corporate world. Now, that I have that knowledge, I've come back to my mom's world to help small businesses and entrepreneurs."
