Too often, women are placed in professional silos based on stereotypical gender roles. To #BreakTheBias, society needs to come together and lift women up for their accomplishments without an underlying tone of surprise. For over a decade, I’ve worked in the interior design industry and also mastered skills in building and renovation. I’ve always been passionate about the business of home, yet it often surprises people that I can lead an entire re-build. Across industries, there is an opportunity to mend distorted notions of what women are capable of… we can do anything we put our mind to!
