What are the most challenging and rewarding aspects of your job and why?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is that I can contribute to a positive culture and recruit talented people to work with. The most challenging aspects of my job are situations that are very complex or unique — the stakes are usually high and I need to slow down and take the time to process through.
Who do you look up to or admire in business and why?
Earlier in my career, I had a boss and mentor, Bill Young, who really taught me about what being a true leader was all about — within the organization and within the community. I credit these lessons to contributing to the type of leader I am today.
What has been the high point of your career so far?
I truly feel that all roads have led me to SVA. I’m excited to use my experience and education at this dynamic organization. The people here are awesome, dedicated, and driven. I thrive in an environment like that!
Thinking back on your career, what advice would you give your 21-year-old self?
You don’t have to have it all figured out! Decide what you want to do now, go to school, try new things, and never stop learning.
