Favorite Quote:

Power without influence is like a tree falling in the woods. It isn’t about getting to the table as much as it is about saving someone else a seat.

Interview Quote:

“I am trying to get to that table but I am also imagining all the chairs I am going to bring up, I am imagining all the seats I am going to save…I’m not just doing it for me.”
