I am on a mission to help black-owned businesses succeed and close the wealth gap. The efforts to create marketing campaigns like 502 Black Business Week and 502 Black Eats Week to promote black-owned businesses locally and nationwide are truly rewarding.

My passion for financially supporting black-owned businesses, spreading the word to everyone I know, and helping them succeed through marketing is remarkable. It's efforts like these that will help create the change we need and close the wealth gap.
