“Purple is tasked with solving our clients’ toughest challenges. Each day I get to push my own mental capacity to solve problems that sometimes can seem almost impossible.”

“I’d tell people starting out that you know more than you think you do. Take on the work you think you know nothing about – that is how you gain in invaluable experience.”

“Wherever I go, one thing I always notice is diversity. As an African American woman in consulting I recognize both the challenges and opportunities around diversity. I am aware of how my presence and my voice can impact the conversation in the room.”
