Undoubtedly, Margo Hinton is one of my absolute favorite people. We met a couple of years ago at at community event at Propel School on the North Side of Pittsburgh. Her energy, excitement, and passion can be heard with every word that she speaks. We are also connected as Premier Members of Women Speakers Association Pittsburgh. As the Global Business Connector for WSA Pittsburgh, it is my honor to have Margo as a member of my leadership team. It was my pleasure to be a featured guest on the Give It Up with Margo Hinton Podcast on Urban Media—along with two other WSA members in Pittsburgh, Yasmin S Brown and Jackey Collier, also on my leadership team.
