Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows
Secrets went away once the internet was invented.
…and, finally, please talk about your experience in New Orleans and what happened in Hurricane Katrina
I served as the regional director for FGI of New Orleans from 2003 to 2005. New Orleans had a much smaller region than Dallas, but was still able to present amazing events and programs. One student who benefitted from the FGI New Orleans scholarship award is now a buyer for a major retailer. Social Media allows me the opportunity to stay in touch with this young woman and reminds me of the impact this organization has had, and continues to have, on its members. Coincidentally, I relocated to Dallas from Biloxi, Mississippi, a few weeks before Hurricane Katrina devastated the entire Gulf Coast region. Although I was not personally affected, this natural disaster took a toll on my fashion peers in the region. Fortunately, because southerners are resilient and always come together in time of need, these areas have been able to rebuild.
