Service Leader, Problem Solver, Human
I grew up in Professional Services in the tech world - analyst, consultant, project manager, director. I'm a mechanical engineer by education. I'm a natural born giver at heart. What defines me is not my 9-5 title or the companies through which I have led. My best version of self (something I'm always working on) is providing service to facilitate the development and growth of others, breaking apart problems and creating awesome solutions, and cultivating human connections. I am focused on my personal journey and learning from the world continuously.
Most meaningful achievement: Standing up for myself, defending my rights, loving myself enough to do so.
Lessons learned: Always, *always*, be your authentic self. Follow your true heart, dance to your own beat, be-you-to-full.
Best advice: Love yourself first and all else will fall into place.
The future is: Now
