I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.

Part of being a Boss Girl is having the courage to talk about serious things. Things that might make you uncomfortable. Things you might not want to talk about.

Things like rape.

We ask that you take a look at the above short film produced by the New Agenda. It delves into the grey matters of sexual assault and why rape is still so prevalent.

If sexual assault is something that strikes a nerve with you, start a conversation with someone you love. Change starts with us speaking openly about this kind of stuff.

Even if it’s sharing this thought-provoking TEDxTalk that reframes how we talk about sex by thinking of… pizza. Yes, you need to watch this one.
