Rica took lessons from her community and nonprofit experiences and transformed herself into an entrepreneurial force. She’s a sought after speaker on the fireside chat founder circuit. And has boldly helped bring together other women entrepreneurs with @thetable and Female Founders Day. She’s been featured in Forbes, Bloomberg, and Black Enterprise.
