I am the CEO and founder of Ask For It, a boutique communications training and consulting firm whose mission is to foster confidence and inspiration in leadership and life. Ask For It was my side hustle until I got laid off and decided to devote myself to it fulltime. In the past year I've trained over 1000 women and men to negotiate. My professional background is in communications and training. I have a master of arts in media, culture and communication from New York University and am a certified yoga teacher. When I'm not writing for Forbes, I volunteer as the co-city manager of the NYC Lady Project, a national nonprofit that connects, showcases and inspires women.
