What woman inspires you and why?

Sherri: My mother inspires me every single day. She is the epitome of strength and resilience and a true symbol of feminism. She left her home country in 1982 and started a new life in the United States barely able to speak the language and with very little financial security – all while raising two young girls. She taught herself English and established herself in the fashion and retail industry in the D.C. area by working at various department stores and boutiques, and gradually advancing to store manager and now business owner for the last 14 years. 

 

What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?

Betty: I love fashion and I love connecting with people on a personal level. Over the last 14 years, I have been fortunate to have met and served the fashion needs of our loyal clientele. It truly brings me pleasure to assist and dress people in a way to make them look and feel their very best. 

 

What are your top priorities?

Sherri: My top priority is maintaining a balance between my career and family life. Parenting a child with special needs, I require a fair degree of flexibility. I have been very fortunate working with my mom and running my own business, which provides me with ideal balance between home and office. Additionally, with advances in technology, I am better able to do the accounting, marketing and buying from home and keeping a watchful eye over my teenage boys.
