It should come as no surprise to anyone that I'm inspired by a multitude of incredible women. Honestly, when I stop to think about the number of women I know in leadership roles, I'm humbled and proud. With this thought in mind, I decided to reach out to one woman, every month, who inspires me and ask them a few questions, Inside the Actor's Studio style.
Okay, I'll admit it. I'm a big social media stalker. Not in a creepy way! More like in a wait-who-are-you-let's-be-friends kind of way. Hannah had just launched Florecer Femme on Instagram and it had already started making waves. So I did what any normal, not-creepy gal would do... I messaged her and said "Hey, I don't know you but let's change that." And we did! One lunch later and I'm happy to say I know the face behind Florecer Femme. And she rocks, y'all.
Describe yourself in 3 words. Driven, loyal, adventurous.
What is your current state of mind? Making a splash. I feel like I am the most driven I have ever been. I want my career at Valero to flourish, I want Florecer Femme to flourish, and I want every person I am surrounded by to flourish with me.
Who do you have to thank for the person you are today? I know this is cliché, but I have my family to thank. I have two wonderful parents, two brothers, two sisters, and was blessed with the most amazing grandmother for many years. They all played significant roles in shaping me into the person I am today. Having a big family is one of the things I am most thankful for in my life.
What song are you playing on repeat right now?* I have been playing the A Star is Born soundtrack on repeat for weeks!
What can you not leave the house without? Every morning, my husband makes me a to-go cup of coffee and kisses me goodbye at the door. I cannot imagine leaving the house any other way.
If you could talk to yourself 10 years ago, what would you tell her? I would tell her to open her mind on career opportunities. Ten years ago, I had no idea how many career paths and choices I had available to me. I did not think big enough at a time when I wish I would have. Helping young women navigate their futures is something I would really like to focus on in my future. To learn more about Hannah and Florecer Femme, click here.
