How Do You Do It All?

HELLO | TWELVE, FEBRUARY 2020

Happy Friday!  It's a rainy, blustery day here in Philly, and another busy week at Delegate.  This week I was part of a doctoral research study looking at single-parent females who have become entrepreneurs.  I was one of 35 participants questioned.  The researcher asked me some deep questions around my own path and motivations with starting Delegate while raising my son.

HELLO | TWELVE, JANUARY 2020

Happy Friday and welcome to the start of a whole new decade together! I hope that you enjoyed some much-deserved downtime with your friends and family.

Wow, what a year!

HELLO | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2019

Happy Friday and happy end of 2019!  It has been a blessed year for me personally and professionally and as I reflect back I am always filled with nothing but gratitude! 

As you've seen me share, Delegate had 2 big award wins this fall; we ranked #52 on the list of Fastest Growing Companies here in Philly AND, I personally won the Philly Chamber's Small Business Person of the Year Award!  It was one of the highest honors of my life, and my son Nathan was there to share it with me.  He was the star of the night for sure, and was super proud to be part of it.  Even my team, though distributed was sharing in the love and made the sweetest video congratulating me from their home offices across the country

Keeping Your Eye on the Ball

HELLO | TWELVE, NOVEMBER 2019


Happy Friday!  Wow, it has been such a busy fall, right?!  Like head-spinning busy- for me both personally and professionally.  As we've shared, Delegate has won some pretty great awards this fall- we grabbed the #52 spot on the fastest growing companies in Philly (woot!  The Philly 100!!), and I won Small Business Person of the Year with the Philly Chamber (a high honor! for me personally!).
