In less than two years the organization has grown to over 1,500 African American women ranging in age from late 20’s to early 70’s.

She earned her dual Masters Degrees (Engineering Management and Regional Planning) from Cornell University.  She has a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from the University of Maryland.
