Reason for starting
I started Trois Coccinelles as a way to bring together independent writers and help them launch writing platforms that will connect them to their readers.

Biggest Success
Deciding that the only thing stopping me from starting this business was my own fear of change.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
I’ve tried to decide how best to make connections with writers and have come to realize that my full time job as a fundraiser has taught me so much more than I realized about connecting people to ideas.

Who is your most important role model?
My daughter. I was 19 when I found out I was pregnant and now, 20 years later as she turns 20 and I’ve just celebrated 40, I can honestly say that she inspires me to be my best self every day.
