Founder and Chairman of the Board - Dprint

Strategist, visionary and advocate: I began my career as an entrepreneur and led both the National Association of Women Business Owners and The International Alliance for Women as national and world presidents respectively. I do not believe in giving up, finding anything impossible, or failing to fully use my gifts to improve myself and others. I DO believe empowered girls change the world and every country can and should do more to make gender irrelevant and education, opportunity and voice a right for every citizen.
