To celebrate Black History Month throughout February, we will be spotlighting exceptional black leaders and professionals in our area.
Today, we are recognizing Verelyn Gibbs Watson, the Franchise Owner of Nothing Bundt Cakes in downtown Bethesda. We asked her a few questions:
Q: What is the most important event or milestone to occur in your lifetime?
A: The birth of our daughter, Channing. It completely changed my perspective and priorities.
Q: Who has been the most inspiring leader to influence you in your personal and professional career?
A: Ursula Burns. It was a constant source of inspiration to not just see a Black woman at the helm of a major organization, but to watch her transform its culture and strategic priorities as well.
Q: What is the most important conversation that the business community should be having?
A: We need to be engaged in the conversation about making the county more hospitable to business. Specifically, supporting small business and removing the barriers to growth and survival.
