“Navigating a start-up company during the pandemic has certainly come with its challenges. It is a credit to those who paved a pathway for us and gave the women of today an opportunity to thrive and be who we are. It is now our responsibility and our privilege to do the same for the next generation. That’s not to say that this is an easy and faultless path, rather there will be countless hurdles to overcome.
