Pursuing Doctorate Degree of Business Administration

California Southern University

Why continuing an education is so important to her:

I am a life-long learner currently pursuing a doctoral degree- Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) from California Southern University. Long term, upon completion of my doctoral degree., I wish to continue in the field of education. I also aspire to partner with large organizations and play a role in increasing diversity in the digital space. I want to have a seat at the table coaching these large organizations on how they can have more cultural and ethnic awareness and inclusiveness in the digital mobile space.

Sabrina, what does the term “Golden Women” mean to you?

Golden Women means someone who is committed to the highest level of service in the areas of education, health, and business for other women. A Golden Woman takes actionable steps to ensure that the next generation has the tools, resources, and knowledge through mentorship and examples of service to thrive and bring other women along to have a seat at the table.

Sabrina, describe something that is plaguing young women today and explain what can be done to turn it around? What can you do to help?

Lack of mentorship opportunities for young women is a missing gap in many young women's lives. I have been a mentor for over fiften years. I have mentored several young women in both structured programs such as the Guttman Community College Women of GRIT Program, The Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program and in my community. As a professor, I naturally encounter many young women looking for guidance in their careers and personnel lives. I believe supportive mentorship is critical and must start in the formative years. Organizations and schools can place a significant role in facilitating mentorship opportunities.
