I believe the keys to success are knowing that if it’s mentionable, it’s manageable.

I am proud of being a working mother.

I am motivated by success stories, and I look for opportunities to ensure everyone around me can succeed. Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.

The best part of my day is being able to welcome someone to their new job. The first day of any job can be daunting, so easing their stress and ensuring they are set up for success gets me really excited.

My personal core values are awareness and discovery. I take pride in my conscious awareness of what exists or is happening around me, as well as within. And in order to know that, I find out or learn something new through exploration or experimentation.
