I am the founder and owner of CJL CONSULTiNG, a niche marketing agency that serves the restaurant, hotel and entertainment chains across the U.S. I am also the founder of our philanthropic arm - The WITI Group - a 501(c)(3) organization that aims to promote the future female leaders of our industry through mentorship as well as financial and emotional support when they find themselves in abusive or otherwise hostile work environments. I started this company more than 10 years ago as a way to stay active in my career while I finished my MBA. But in 2017, I fully re-engaged in the company as it was clear that after years in the corporate world, I was making plenty of money. but I wasn't making an impact.
