I am a feminist. I believe in equality. I own a business to be sure that I personally drive that vision forward.
On September 18, 2020, the loss of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) hit me hard on many levels. Not least is my deep admiration for her career, her accomplishments and grace.
I watched as she battled multiple cancers over the course of 20 years. My connection to her grew deeper, knowing that she was widowed for 10 years, yet, there she was. She kept going.
She had stage 4 pancreatic cancer and continued to carry out her duties as a member of the court at 87 years old. Having seen first-hand what this diagnosis means, it took my admiration to another level.
The news brought me back to my husband’s diagnosis with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and how he continued to work. He ran the Canadian operations of Pastene up until 5 days before his death.
There is so much fight within us. There is strength, and it’s inspirational. I want to bring that passion, drive and accomplishment to you and your career.
I can’t help but reflect on the meaning of life, and what makes a person. Her power in legacy and inspiration for generations is not lost on me. So, as I sit here sipping my tea on a dreary day, I think about how I can be a greater force of change for you.
