I joined the Gaithersburg Germantown Chamber of Commerce because I was searching. I had recently sold my stake in a Partnership at another firm and wanted local visibility for my new firm. GGCC not only encouraged me to take leadership roles, they also gave me an equal voice. I can’t express enough how that made me feel being an African-American managing wealth for high net-worth individuals. It’s tough enough proving my value and worth. But as my clients have learned, I know just as much and in some cases much more. Thank you GGCC for looking past pigmentation and seeing me for me.
