Our friends at SMU invites TABPHE Dallas to ” Looking Beyond the Horizon!”
Ardenia was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas and graduated with honors from R.L. Paschal High School. She went on to attend the historic Spelman College in Atlanta, GA where she graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Economics. After college, Ardenia attended the University of Texas at Austin and received a master’s degree from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. Hook ‘em horns!! Ardenia also received rigorous education and training from the School Of Life. She’s experienced corporate success as well as lay-offs; the highs and lows of entrepreneurship; motherhood and the accompanying work/life “balancing act”; a career quarter-life crisis followed by a career renaissance; and a dramatic turn as a landlord-which she promises to write a book about someday!
