What drew you to become a member of the OKGIT?
I am interested in expanding opportunities for Oklahoma businesses to increase their trade and improve communication with business owners in other countries.
Tell us a bit about your international experience in your life and work in Oklahoma.
I am networked with the several organizations of which I am involved with that assist with the mission of OKGIT expansion between Oklahoma companies and others. For instance, I previously served as treasurer for the Sister Cities International OKC, Inc. and became president in January, 2020. I serve as treasurer for IEEW, Peace Through Business Program which works with Women Business Owners in Rwanda and Afghanistan. I have mentored women from Rwanda, Afghanistan, Japan, Thailand and Taiwan. My firm is the Oklahoma Audit and Accounting Firm for IR Global a professional service network of legal, accounting and financial advice to companies and individuals worldwide and I also serve on the International Committee for Rotary Club 29, which is working to bring together business and professional leaders to assist with humanitarian projects worldwide.
Outside of that, I enjoy traveling to other countries to better understand the culture and business opportunities available
