Something you should know
I am very passionate about lifting others as I climb.
Her Personal Side
I grew up in Tuskegee, Alabama, the daughter of Wade Bradford, a World War II veteran admitted into the first class of veterinary medicine at Tuskegee Institute and Donna Bradford, a neurodiagnostic technologist and Persian Gulf Veteran.
Most people don't know
Most people don't know that I was an adjunct professor of American government.
Words of Wisdom
My management career began with my mentor, Ellenae Fairhurst, the owner of the first-ever African American woman-owned Lexus dealership in the country. She shared the following words of advice with me, “Don’t aspire to be me, be better. Always reach for more than you can see.” Her encouragement left a lasting impression on me and helped me to pursue my entrepreneurial endeavors. I choose to honor her by sharing those same words of wisdom, to help others dream bigger and find success within their passions.
