Biggest professional struggle that you overcame: I started as a master franchisee when I was 24. I had to be okay with diving into having many different roles earlier on in my career and learning on the spot from my day to day experiences. It was a vulnerable position to be in but it helped me know what kind of team I needed to build to support our business.
Advice to women trying to move up the ladder in the restaurant industry: Trust yourself and make it a point to voice your opinions. I also like to list out my career goals at the beginning of each year to remind myself where I would like to see myself in the future.
Favorite meal/item on your menu: My favorite drink is our Milk Foam Green Tea with Pearls. It comes with our freshly brewed green tea and our tapioca pearls, which sit at the base of the drink and topped with our house specialty milk foam.
