The most rewarding aspect at your current role…
    • I love to see firsthand how an event that I helped bring to the region impacts not only our local stakeholders, but how the participants and their families and friends enjoy the experience. 

 

Best career advice I have received…
    • Become a lifelong learner. You can continue to learn no matter what stage of your career you are in. When you learn continuously, you can gain more skills and become flexible and adaptable in your career path. Possessing a willingness to learn is an attribute that is highly valued in today's workforce. I quit social media three years ago and instead, immerse myself in reading the news, what’s going on in the world and learning new skills or software.

Best memory I’ve created in the past year…
    • Traveling back home from Hawaii took a bit longer than expected. We were stuck in Los Angeles for two nights, then drove home from Atlanta after a night there. Although it took 4 days to get home amidst some airline issues, we ended up extending our vacation and had some cool experiences.

 

In my free time, I’m…
    • With family or friends whenever possible. I love to play golf, watch football and take vacations to cool new locations.

 

I’m inspired by…
    • My friends and family. I am so lucky to be surrounded but an amazing group of people that are always supportive.
