Carmen Parra

Owner of CMIT Solutions of Dallas – White Rock & Highland Park

Our services provide outsourced Information Technology in the SMB space. She has been fortunate to help her female colleagues focus on their business instead of their technology. This aligns with her goal to be a trusted business and technology partner to female owned businesses.

She inherited her entrepreneurial spirit when she began working at a young age in her parent’s business. Eventually, she traveled to New York for an internship and completed her MBA. She moved back to Dallas with her husband where they are in business together. When Carmen is not focusing on business development, she is spending time with her young children.

Elizabeth Di Cristofano

Wellness Warrior + Founder of Immerse in Health

Elizabeth is a 15 year veteran in product development and international communications.
Having fallen victim to corporate burnout, she decided to take matters into her own hands and step away to focus more on health and wellness - now a huge part of her life.
