Q: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned during your career?

A: Have faith in yourself, fight for yourself and take chances. When I heard about a restaurant job that – on paper – I wasn’t qualified for, I asked for five minutes of their time. Within that five minutes, I convinced the owners that I could handle the responsibility. Two years later, I’m managing four restaurants and developing a restaurant consulting business. You have to be your biggest advocate.

Q: What was a major turning point in your life or career?

A: I decided to run for office, to the Virginia House of Delegates. Too many people argue and not enough reach across the aisle to get things done for small businesses, the backbone of our communities. It’s time to change that.
