"I am inspired by MIA's WIS initiative. It marries all of my passions: helping other women, talking about natural stone, networking, and representing my Walker Zanger family. MIA has been critical to my success in the industry, particularly through the development and tools of the CEU program. So in the words of Sheryl Sandberg, I say it is time to cheer on women who want to sit at the table. What would you do if you weren't afraid?"
