Pursuing a field that is thought to be for men is something that you would expect of Whitehead. From a tender age, Whitehead was intrigued by everything that was thought to be a man’s field only. At just the age of 12, she had to disguise herself as a boy in order to play in the baseball league. She signed in as Andy and was allowed into the Beach Little League team. Three years later, she began skating. At the time, skating for females was unheard of. But, Whitehouse being a hard nut, just had to prove that women can do everything just the same as men. So, two years later she was recognized as one of the best female skateboarders in the United States.

She decided to retire from skateboarding five years later. She began a career in sports styling. At first, she was a regular stylist but a few years later, her love for sports inspired her to be a stylist in the sporting industry. There her journey began. Her services would be sought by companies who were looking to advertise using athletes. She would style them based on their geographical locations and what was trending in the specific sports. During her time as a sports stylist, she worked with big league companies including Nike, Adidas, Gatorade, and Coca-Cola.

Whitehead uses the Pink Ceiling to offer consultation services to women with startups.

Perhaps the reason why Fortune Magazine branded her as a tireless force of Nature. Her excellent team of professionals, guide other entrepreneurs through the journey to becoming successful.
